ESRC 2022

The European Students Research Conference - for Risk, Safety and Security took place last year virtually on 21 October 2022. Only completed theses were allowed to be submitted. The thesis project had to deal with the topic of safety or security and had to be presented in the form of a scientific poster, which was evaluated by the jury members.

We had a noteworthy program and were very delighted that the EU Commissioner for Budget and Administration, Johannes Hahn, supported us with a video message at the conference.

You can watch the past conference in its entirety here.

Due to the active support of the 10 jury members and the great cooperation of the universities, we could successfully hold the first conference.
