Last call! The deadline for PhD poster applications to the ECIU Research Conference in Barcelona is open until the 6th June 2023! 

PhDs with accepted poster abstract submissions will receive travel grants from ECIU@UT to fund their attendance to the conference (no fees).

In October 3rd & 4th 2023, our ECIU partner, Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, will host the ECIU University Research Conference, the first conference addressed to both the university community and regional stakeholders, such as businesses, public administrations and civil society, with the aim of proposing and sharing challenge-based research initiatives in an interactive forum, related to SDG11 and four main subtopics: 

  • Energy and Sustainability 
  • Resilient Communities
  • Transport and Mobility
  • Circular Economy 

The conference is organised by the ECIU University as part of the ECIU University Research Institute for SMART European Regions (SMART-ER) project, funded by the EU's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, and by the Erasmus+ funded programme ECIU University (ECIUn+). It is also coordinated by a scientific committee made up by members of the 12 ECIU universities. 

Seating will be limited to 200 participants and priority will be given to those participating in the posters sessions (for PhD candidates) or in the challenge-based sessions.
