Scientific sponsors for organizing colloquia 2021-2022

Closed call

The Arqus European University brings together the universities of Bergen, Granada, Graz, Leipzig, Lyon, Padua and Vilnius. The main aim of Arqus is to act as a platform for institutional learning that serves as a basis for developing, testing and implementing an innovative inter-university cooperation model.
 

GETTING INVOLVED IN THE ORGANIZATION OF INTERNATIONAL EVENTS 

Of the nine common areas of research that have been identified by assessing the strengths of each Arqus partner (cancer research, physics/surface science, the human brain, aging and health, changing societies, digital humanities, European cultural heritage, global change/climate change and artificial intelligence), two of them are being paid particular attention: climate change and artificial intelligence.

In view of its expertise and strengths, the UdL has been specifically entrusted with organizing two events:

  • In the fall of 2021, a colloquium focusing on climate change and biodiversity;
  • In the fall/winter 2021/2022, a conference dedicated to artificial intelligence and digital transformation.

To do so, it is looking for a scientific sponsor for each of these two events.


WHO CAN APPLY

Applicants must:

  • Be working in one of the following institutions: the Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1, the Université Jean Moulin Lyon 3, the Université Jean Monnet Saint-Étienne and the ENS de Lyon;
  • Be recognized in the relevant subject areas (climate change/biodiversity and artificial intelligence/digital transformation) and have scientific knowledge/expertise in that field.


Applications may be submitted jointly by several researchers/research professors, provided they each meet the above criteria.
