Congress Aim

Our aim is to bring together the world's best undergraduate research and to work on some of the most significant challenges the global community is facing today.

The World CUR 2019 will be an opportunity for global dialogue across many different fields of inquiry. Students across the world are invited to share their research, develop new professional networks, create international research partnerships, and to enjoy and explore the northwest of Germany.

Research Themes

  • Submitted research will be arranged in six interdisciplinary categories. The themes will allow you to engage in interdisciplinary debates and be accompanied by “thematic sessions” aiming on professional networking and project development. When you submit your abstract you will be asked to indicate the theme that aligns with your research. More »

  • Oldenburg (in Oldenburg) is Lower Saxony’s fourth-largest city, and the main one in the region between the rivers Weser and Ems. With a thriving business community, unique cultural institutions and not least the flourishing universities and educational facilities, Oldenburg is a driving force for the future. Urban living close to rural idyll, renewable energies and green developments in symbiosis with high-tech and efficient infrastructure emphasize the city as an attractive place within the metropolitan region of Bremen-Oldenburg. The ducal heritage of several centuries is visible everywhere in Oldenburg‘s classicist urban architecture – and goes hand in hand with contemporary chic. The city centre is the largest connected pedestrian precinct in Germany, and it is home to more than 1,000 businesses. A great place to make exciting discoveries.
