About the seminar:

This seminar will offer researchers from partner universities the opportunity to present their work and identify areas of collaboration to set up joint projects. The seminar will consist of various sessions and thematic workshops according to specific themes of interest which will be identified on the basis of the proposals made by the participants. First themes are already identified, but there are many other possibilities!

Please note that we strongly encourage the participation of doctoral students in these seminars. Indeed, they are also designed for them and could be the occasion for a first international exchange, within the framework of a seminar in English.

Already identified themes and additional information about the Cyber Security and AI seminar can be found on the seminar website https://cybersecai.muni.cz/.


Thematic seminars

You are looking for research partners abroad to develop new projects? You have a research project and you would like to find collaborators to develop it at a European scale? You wish to expand your research network across Europe? The EDUC thematic seminars might provide you with just what you are looking for.

The EDUC Alliance invites senior researchers and doctoral students of the University of Potsdam to take part in the seminars organised within the project “EuropeanDigitalUniverCity – EDUC”, workpackage 9 “Education meets research”, funded under the Erasmus+ Programme.

The EDUC project, is a joint initiative of the Universities of Potsdam (Germany), project leader; Cagliari (Italy); Rennes 1 (France); Paris-Nanterre (France), Masaryk (Czech Republic), Pécs (Hungary), that was selected by the European Commission as one of the pilot European Universities, under its first call for proposal in 2019.

About the seminars

One of the main objectives of the EDUC partner universities is to encourage and strengthen cooperation in research. Specifically, the Alliance identified seven main research areas towards which addressing common challenges and missions.

The research areas, reported in the following table, were chosen by the Alliance because they reflect both the strength and diversity of its six members’ research domains. They strike a balance between hard sciences and socio-humanities, with the aim to give to a wide range of researchers and PhD students the possibility to successfully cooperate. Moreover, these themes address societal challenges which can benefit from cross-disciplinary contributions and the direct involvement of local ecosystems and policy makers.

The seminars will take place starting from March 2021, according to the scheme below.
