EDGE Jamboree 2022

Once a year, EDGE organizes a joint conference, the Jamboree, at which doctoral students and faculty members of the EDGE institutions participate. The Jamboree is a platform where the more advanced students present their research. Furthermore, the Jamboree offers doctoral students the possibility to acquire more information about the partner universities, or to refresh the contacts made at their host universities. The executive committee has its regular annual meeting at the Jamboree.
