Scientific Conferences at the IU

Exchange and networking in the scientific community

Conferences and symposia are the crystallisation point of academic discourse, friendly and collegial networking and constructive discussion - whether analogue or online. The contributions of the speakers often end up in a joint publication and thus become part of the professional discourse. Here you will find a selection of past and future conferences that the IU International University of Applied Sciences has hosted or will host.

The link between practice and research

Conferences at the IU enable professors and academic staff to engage in dialogue about current research and thus improve the quality of research at the IU; at the same time, they connect practice and research so that both practice and research can learn and benefit from each other. Last but not least, specialist conferences at the IU provide students with insight into current questions and answers in specialist discussions.
