The annual ELLS conference and Scientific Student Conference – SSC has been organized in its current form since 2008, and gives Rectors and Deans from member- and partneruniversities the opportunity to meet and elaborate on their collaborations, as well as giving students from the participating universities the chance to present their own research to their peers and participating scientists. Furthermore, the Scientific Student Conference gives the students a chance to network with a large group of international students, and to seek inspiration, inputs and knowledge for future research projects and possible career opportunities.
The student conference extends two days, and is based on an elected theme which differs from each year.
The conference includes a number of oral presentaitons from both professional keynote speakers and students who are chosen to present their own projects, as well as poster presentations from students. As part of the student conference the student presentations are evaluated by an academic committee that awards prizes within a number of categories connected to the theme of the conference.
For this year's theme ”Global Challenges – The Impact of Life Sciences” there is also a focus on creating a greater connection between scientific research and its dissemination and application through intra- and entrepreneurship.
