ICUR 2021: Present your research to a vast international audience.

A new edition of ICUR, is here and will take place on 28 and 29 September 2021. Save the date! 2 June 2021: Call for Abstracts to close



For 2 days, 11 countries and 5 continents are going to get together to present the best undergraduate research arena from around the world. ICUR is the perfect scene for students to share their research with the rest of EUTOPIA universities. June 2nd 2021: call for abstracts to close.


Monash University (Australia) and University of Warwick (UK) will be holding again this global event, opening ICUR to EUTOPIA partners and allowing UPF students to present and reflect on their research work from an international and interdisciplinary approach. The aim is to connect teams in multiple locations, engaging in debates and exchanges, finding synergies between their researches and creating future contact networks.


Since 2013, more than 2000 students from 11 different institutions have applied to ICUR, without having to leave their home university, which is particularly suitable in the current COVID-19 context. 

Last year, 24 students from Universitat Pompeu Fabra participated in this conference and 87% of them would recommend it. You can check it here


How can I participate?

To participate in ICUR, you just need to:

  1. Be a UPF undergraduate student. ICUR is open to all degrees. 

  2. Send an abstract of the project of maximum 250 words length through this form before June 2nd 2021.It is recommended to seek academic advice from the supervisor of your TFG or further research.

If the submitted proposal is accepted, it will be included in a thematic panel. It should be noted that the topics are not by discipline, since what ICUR does is to group students around interdisciplinary topics based on their research flows.


Keep in mind that, in each ICUR session, three students present each research project for 15 minutes, followed by another 15-minute round of questions. The proposals will be presented from the home university and through videoconference.


Students can also participate as an audience meeting students from other institutions and participating in the Q&A rounds of all sessions.

What does ICUR offer?

  1. ICUR offers a platform to challenge your undergraduate research project by presenting and connecting with a wider global audience, which will add value to your own work by facilitating an in-depth discussion and debate.

  1. If selected, your research work will be analysed from an international perspective, promoting its impact at a global level, and you will get interdisciplinary inputs and feedback.

  1. You will get to meet leading professionals and researchers in fields of your interest.
