Lower Saxony-Scotland Joint Forum

First Lower Saxony-Scotland Joint Forum

We are thrilled to announce the first of many editions of the Lower Saxony-Scotland Joint Forum set to take place on Monday, 23 and Tuesday, 24 November 2020 at Leuphana University Lüneburg.

The Joint Forum is a two-day event organised by Leuphana University Lüneburg together with the European Centre for Advanced Studies (ECAS) and the University of Glasgow. It is supported and financed by the Ministry of Science and Culture of Lower Saxony (MWK).

As an expression of the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the State Rectors Conference of Lower Saxony (LHK) and the Universities Scotland (US), the Joint Forum 2020 shall build the basis for a yearly returning conference functioning
as a networking platform for researchers, academics, staff and students from both countries. Existing cooperations between universities and higher education institutions shall be deepened and new ones established. It is believed that these
cooperations will go far beyond the conference and a lasting network between universities is established to the benefits of both Lower Saxony and Scotland.

During the conference you may expect to listen to presentations of renown scientists from universities in Scotland and Lower Saxony, young researchers as well as motivated students presenting interesting research as well collaboration ideas on ongoing as well as future joint projects. Next to this, there will be plenty of opportunity to network, engage in discussions and find new partners.

We are looking forward to seeing you in Lüneburg!

Further news on registration, programme etc. will follow soon here!
