3-minute Elevator Pitch Competition

Up to three winners will receive a free registration to the next EDEN Annual Conference to present their research results. A committee of EDEN Vice-President of Research, Wim Van Petegem, the Chief Editor of EURODL, Ulrich Bernath, and the EDEN Secretary General, Andras Szucs, will decide on winners. Winners of the Research-in-Process Elevator Pitch will be announced at the closing session. Read more on the competition here.

Visit the Oldenburg State Theatre

The dome of the Oldenburg State Theatre has been part of the city’s skyline since 1893. The building is of Neo-Baroque design, and although it has undergone some changes, its essence has been retained.

Three theatres are housed under its roof. In addition to the impressive Grosses Haus with 827 seats, in October 1998 the curtain first rose in the Kleines Haus which seats 350. In the season of 2001/2002, a small studio theatre, the Spielraum with seating for 70, also came into being.

The programme of the Oldenburg State Theatre is coloured by a high-quality, classic repertoire of operas, operettas, musicals, plays, dance performances and concerts as well as its commitment to the artistic avant-garde. Premieres and debut performances are regular features on the State Theatre’s programme.


The 9th EDEN Research Workshop is the initiative of EDEN supported by the ERASMUS+ Programme of the European Union
