As part of our participation in the Erasmus-funded 'A European Network for Digital Undergraduate Research' project, we are inviting a selection of students from universities participating in this project to present their research in person at ICUR 2022 at the University of Warwick. Applying students must attend one of our project partner universities and must have completed a research project as an undergraduate student.
What is ICUR?
