The Euroleague for Life Sciences (ELLS) is a network of leading universities cooperating in the fields of Natural Resource Management, Agricultural and Forestry Sciences, Life Sciences, Veterinary Sciences, Food Sciences, and Environmental Sciences.

The focus of ELLS is on joint teaching and learning, student and staff mobility, and quality assurance. These activities will result in highly qualified graduates, who are prepared for the demands of the European and international market. Furthermore, through the sharing of expertise and resources, this network will enhance the national and international position and potential of all partner universities, as part of the development and implementation of their degree programmes.

Through this network, BOKU realizes many international (educational) projects, like international masterprogrammes, summer schools, scientific student conferences...

International partners are:

  • CAU - China Agricultural University, Beijing
  • HUJI - Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment
  • LU - Lincoln University, New Zealand

  • ELLS Conferences 2020

ELLS Scientific Student Conference 2020
"The World of Tomorrow: A Green and Sustainable Society"
BOKU, 20.-21. November 2020

ELLS General Assembly & Forum 2020
"Scenarios for the Future: The Impact of Life Sciences on Human Life Quality in the 21st Century"
BOKU, 19.-20. November 2020


From November 19 to 21 BOKU organised the first online edition of the annual network conference of the Euroleague for Life Sciences and the ELLS Scientific Student conference.

More than 500 students and staff member of the different ELLS universities registered for these conferences.

The topic of this year’s General Assembly & Forum was "Scenarios for the Future: The Impact of Life Sciences on  Human Life Quality in the 21st Century". After the opening by Rector Hasenauer, Prof. Verena Winiwarter from the Institute of Social Ecology, at BOKU gave an inspiring keynote: "Providing Sustainable Human Well- Being. Why Life Sciences are Key to the Agenda 2030". Three workshops further elaborated the conference theme resp. dealt with the network’s future options in research collaboration. Furthermore, the conference was also used to share experience and knowhow on the adaptations of teaching and administration due to the current COVID-19 situation and to further elaborate the network’s strategic goals.

"The World of Tomorrow – A Green and Sustainable Society" was the topic of the ELLS Scientific Student Conference. In four different subthemes students presented the results of the bachelor or master theses or their first PhD-year. After the keynote by Dr. Simone Gingrich, Institute of Social Ecology, -  "Land use and sustainability: lessons from the past and challenges for the future", the Students' Innovation Centre [sic!] organised a panel discussion with BOKU start-ups to demonstrate future career options. In total 36 oral and 41 poster presentations were held at the Scientific Student Conference. The best presentations were awarded the “ELLS Student Presentation Prize”: 8 out of the 21 prizes went to BOKU students or recent graduates – see below.

As far as the conference design is concerned, the organisational team around BOKU-International Relations and the Euroleague Student Association ELSA tried to create a “real conference feeling”: making contacts and networking was a central goal – despite the missing physical encounters. Thus, a conference platform that guides the participants virtually through the BOKU campuses was created. This platform embedded not only the classical zoom meetings, but also integrated the virtual platform “Wonder” for scientific discussion and social exchange: The participants respectively their avatars just moved around the room, approached each other and formed small groups in bubbles, where they discuss in video chats – almost like in real conference breaks.

Already now, we warmly invite all BOKU students and staff members to join the next ELLS conference which will be held from November 18 to 20, 2021 at the Warsaw University of Life Sciences (WULS-SGGW). If online, hybrid or as physical edition, still needs to be decided in spring.
