Bright Students' Conference 2013
Energy Transition in the 21st Century
The BRIGHT Students’ Conference is an annual gathering of students from member universities of the League of European Research Universities (LERU). The conference, which celebrated its 10th anniversary this year, aims to provide an environment in which excellent students can focus on themes crucial to their education and cultural development, as field specialists and stakeholders of the Europe of tomorrow. While LERU was founded to enhance the cooperation between Europe’s top research universities, the purpose of the BRIGHT Conference is to develop a strong network between Europe’s brightest students and to offer them a platform on which they can discuss politically, socially and intellectually challenging topics that are shaping our present and future.
The BRIGHT Conference is organised by students, for students.
More than 80 students from 17 of the 21 LERU universities participated in this five-day forum. The University of Freiburg, Germany, and the University of Strasbourg, France, were honored to host the conference this year from August 12 to 16.
