We are beyond excited to host EPPC2023 in beautiful Stirling, Scotland. Stirling is a small city, right in the middle between Glasgow and Edinburgh (each only being 30min away), which makes it an ideal, central location to explore Scotland’s wide variety of beautiful natural environments and green spaces.

The stunning nature characterising Scotland can be experienced right at the heart of the beautiful 330-acre University of Stirling campus, our EPPC2023 host location. Our Hollywood worthy setting is one of the most scenic campuses in the UK, with it’s own loch as only 1 of many green spaces, and has acted as the backdrop to major films and television series. If you are not convinced yet, we’re sure the pictures below will! We look forward to welcoming you from August 30 to September 1, 2023!
