Three host institutions taking on the ECSS 2015 Congress in Malmö

In only a week from today people from all over the world will be arriving to the ECSS 2015 Congress, and we are proud to welcome you to Malmö. This year’s congress will be hosted by three great universities from the Öresund region, Malmö University, Lund University and University of Copenhagen.

Malmö University
Malmö University was founded in 1998 and is a young, modern and international university. It has about 25,000 students and offers undergraduate and postgraduate education. Malmö University’s mission is to be an active hub for research, education, and innovation that benefits the global society. Education and research at Malmö University is aligned with and focused on the major challenges in contemporary society. Hence, research is often multidisciplinary and frequently pursued in collaboration with partners from outside the university.

Lund universityLund University
Lund University has a long and vibrant history covering almost 350 years of teaching. It has evolved from just a few hundred students and professors being paid with meat and grain into its present form, with around 47,000 students and a international position of excellence in teaching and research. The University is organised into eight faculties as well as many departments, schools and research centres. The University has three campuses located in the cities of Lund, Helsingborg and Malmö, all in southern Sweden.
Copenhagen UniversityUniversity of Copenhagen
With over 38,000 students and more than 9,000 employees, the University of Copenhagen is the largest institution for research and education in Denmark. The purpose of the University – to quote the University Statute – is to ‘conduct research and provide further education at the highest academic level’. Approximately one hundred different institutes, departments, laboratories, centres, museums, etc., form the nucleus of the University, where professors, lecturers and other academic staff, as well as most of the technical and administrative personnel, carry out their daily work, and where teaching takes place. These activities can be found in various environments ranging from the plant world of the Botanical Gardens, through high-tech laboratories and auditoriums, to the historic buildings and lecture rooms of Frue Plads and other locations.

See you soon in Malmö!
