Conference: From Minor Subjects to major Opportunities?

Eucor – The European Campus invites you to participate in a conference to be held on 22 June 2022 entitled “From minor subjects to major opportunities? Novel approaches to inter- and intradisciplinary cooperation at the European Campus”. Through this trinational conference, the Eucor network would like to encourage networking and cooperation among so-called minor subjects, which are characterised by a relatively small number of students and scientists in research and teaching. The aim is to use the synergies and complementarities to strengthen these disciplines in the long-term. The one-day conference commences with a keynote lecture on successful project proposals in the area of minor subjects. In a subsequent discussion among representatives from Germany, France and Switzerland of the structural differences, opportunities for cooperation at the European Campus will be explored. The afternoon will be devoted to professional networking with several parallel sessions. Opportunities for support will also be identified. The conference will be moderated by Prof. Thomas Grob, Vice-Rector for Teaching at the University of Basel, and will take place in the Kollegienhaus of the University of Basel.
