Held on 14-18 February 2022 at the University of Tartu, Estoniaif necessary, it will move online!


The workshop provides a platform for cross-disciplinary collaboration for the ENLIGHT network universities’ researchers. The participants are invited to collectively look for solutions to the challenges under the anchor topic “Equity and Sustainability”.

During the event, five labs will be formed, each comprised of two senior researchers and up to seven PhD students. Together, each group will produce a preliminary short draft of an interdisciplinary research proposal, which will require coming up with a common topic, working packages, deliverables, and other conventional elements of a research application. The participants of different labs will engage in common events to discuss emerging difficulties and challenges; they will also be advised by professional project coordinators. At the end of the event, the labs will present their project proposals to the others, which will be followed by a general discussion.

Please find more information on the programme and eligibility for participation on the ENLIGHT website.

The workshop is planned to be held live; if necessary, it will move online. Travel expenses can be covered by the university – for further details regarding accommodation and travel costs, please contact Esther von Richthofen (University Göttingen)
