The University of Edinburgh are hosting the U21 2017 Undergraduate Research Conference in June 2017 on the theme of 'Future Societies, Global Citizens.'

What global challenges will face future societies and how can today’s internationally minded students become global citizens?

In collaboration with the University of Edinburgh’s Global Academies, the conference will be positioned under the four main themes of development, health, justice and the environment.

Under each theme we will explore the potential for active global citizenship in improving human rights, realising fundamental freedoms, expanding human knowledge, and driving innovation. The conference will offer a unique opportunity for undergraduate scholars to hone their research, public speaking and networking skills with acclaimed academics and peers from around the world. There will also be the opportunity to participate in a variety of extracurricular events to explore Scotland’s political and cultural heritage, from tours of Edinburgh Castle and the Scottish Parliament to a traditional Ceilidh dance.


Students must by nominated by their home institutions.

How To Register

Nominated students have been provided with registration information by the University of Edinburgh.
