    and either

    I participated in..., or
    I took part in...

    take participation in sounds wrong, if in reference to yourself. It's possible, but it depends on the rest of your sentence, e.g.

    With her boundless energy, she took participation in the school fete to new levels.

    "By invitation of the Ministry of Science, I participated in''

    is a more common expression

    Could you elaborate on this? Under which circumstances "take participation in" is correct?

    I provided an example in my post.
    So this is correct.
    With her boundless energy, she took participation in the school fete to new levels.
    And this is not
    With my boundless energy, I took participation in the school fete to new levels.

    It's hard to see why.
