IkerGazte2021! Two more years have passed, and without noticing it IkerGazte’s 4th edition is knocking on the door again. You may think “without noticing it” sounds a bit exaggerated because of the whirl we have been living in since the beginning of 2020. This is leaving an indelible trace on our society. We are sure 2021 is not going to be an easy one, but please, you, ikergazte, do keep up and let’s make IkerGazte2021 in Gasteiz even more enthusiastic with more passion than ever before.

We have been working hard together since the 2015 edition. And let me tell you, it has been no insiginificant thing to reach the fourth edition given the significant challenges we have faced. We have no doubt that this 2021 edition will be special. Overall, IkerGazte is a meeting point and even though we will strive for it to be a face-to-face event, if in the end it has to be on-line, IkerGazte will happen, it will surely happen! Indeed, we cannot face a two year period without IkerGazte, because we already are a reference point.

And, as there is no Ikergazte without your contribution, we, in the name of the UEU and of the conference scientific board, would like to invite you to IkerGazte2021 which will be held in Gasteiz between the 9th and the 11th of June 2021. No matter what research area you work in, come to Vitoria-Gasteiz: there is indeed a Basque researchers’ community that does research in Arts & Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural Sciences, Technology & Architecture and in Health Sciences. Be part of the Basque researchers’ meeting, get to know hundreds of young researchers, discover research-works that may be close (or not so close) to your research area.

Have you finished your PhD? Did you finish 3-4 years ago? Are you just about to finish? Come! This is your chance to share your results to the Basque researchers’ community!
