The ESC – European Students’ Conference is one of the largest biomedical conferences worldwide and has been one of the main events at the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin for many years. Addressing young scientists, graduate students, post-graduate students, PhD students, post-docs, and everyone interested in biomedical research, the ESC represents an interdisciplinary platform for international scientific exchange between numerous countries, students, clinicians, and professors from different fields of research and various cultures.
General emphasis is put on a high quality scientific and educational programme. This is realized in a series of scientific sessions, educational workshops and lectures that cover most fields of medicine. In addition to general subjects, each team selects a priority topic that becomes the focus of the respective ESC: The theme of this year´s Conference is “Consciousness and the Senses – How do we Perceive the World?” (Learn More about this Year`s Lecture Series)
Founded in 1989 the ESC historically served as a bridge to East-West student relations after the fall of the Berlin Wall. The aim was to create a platform for young researchers from different fields. Over the past 24 years, the ESC established a way of bringing researchers and medical staff with different interests, but more importantly different countries together.
Reaching out to all corners of the continent and the four corners of the world, the ESC is proud to welcome 500 – 700 presenting and not-presenting participants from over 60 countries, every year. Furthermore, we hope to encourage a more interdisciplinary approach to modern sciences, and to give you the opportunity to present your research to the scientific community and an interested audience.
Our global student conference is held annually in autumn at the Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin, Germany. This year it will take place from 4th – 7th September 2013. We hope you will come to the great city of Berlin and join us!
