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

Programme Outline

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.

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.
