The aim of the conference

Undergraduate research (UR), i.e., student research as a teaching and learning principle, is an innovative and open pedagogy and has become a major consideration among universities around the world. As studies show, UR supports rapid, deep learning in a discipline, reduces dropout rates and fosters inclusion. Therefore, UR is considered a characteristic of high-impact educational practices and of leading European research universities. The pandemic redefined UR in that research and learninghad to happen online. The idea of this conference is to bring together academics from all over Europe to share experiences with Undergraduate Research, to get to know how you can digitally advance.
