Urban Challenges: building healthy, smart, and creative cities for the future

July 8-12, 2013

Three UConn undergraduate research students will be selected to participate in a conference to be held this summer at the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Each student chosen to attend will receive $2,000 to help defray the costs of travel, funded jointly by the Office of Global Affairs and the Office of Undergraduate Research.

Urban issues will be the focus of the conference, and topics such as public health, logistics, safety, governance, migration, cultural dynamics, and design will be discussed. One student will be nominated to give an oral presentation, another for a poster presentation, and a third will be nominated for either category.  The conference will provide the opportunity to showcase their research to an international audience of fellow students and faculty. Presentation guidelines can be found at http://www.urc2013.uva.nl/.    

The deadline to apply is March 15, 2013. Download the application and instructions through the Office of Global Affairs. Details regarding eligibility, travel, and activities are in the program brochure. Please contact Dr. Raluca Nahorniac in the Office of Global Affairs (raluca.nahorniac@uconn.edu) with any questions.
