After two successful editions with over 300 participants, the European Centre for Advanced Studies (ECAS) in partnership with Leuphana University of Lüneburg and the University of Glasgow, invites you to the third edition of the Lower Saxony – Scotland Joint Forum.

Taking place on Monday, 21 and Tuesday, 22 November 2022 as a hybrid conference, the Joint Forum is the main event for building bridges between higher education institutions in Lower Saxony and Scotland. It brings together academics, staff and students as well as other stakeholders and forms the perfect platform to network, engage in exciting discussions, find new partners, develop joint visions and benefit from the possibility of a cross-national exchange.


Submissions for workshop proposals are open. Details on the forum and submission requirements are found on the event webpage.

Format of the event 

The Joint Forum is an annual conference designed to foster the relationship between higher education institutions within both regions, by establishing lasting links between academics, staff, and students. It provides the perfect platform to network, to expand existing partnerships and to establish new collaborations.

On the first day, you may expect a dynamic event and discourse by renowned experts and academics from Lower Saxony and Scotland evolving around the subject of 'Renewable Energies and Sustainability'. It will be streamed from the University of Glasgow, where discussions will take place.

While it was hoped to offer a general invitation to in-person conferences in the future, ECAS has decided to have this year's event in a hybrid format. This means that the focused group on sustainable energy will (hopefully) meet in-person and the rest of will meet virtually.

On the second day, we invite academics, staff and students to offer their own workshops to present and discuss joint projects, building momentum in existing co-operations and stimulating new ideas and partnerships for future collaborations.
