ERIN was founded as a platform for publishing of work of young researchers and PhD students who may present their research results in a community of their peers.

ERIN provides a space where everyone is free to get acquainted with state-of-the-art knowledge and information in their fields of interests. Most of all, ERIN is a unique occasion for young researchers to get familiar with the process of paper creation and its professional presentation in English, Slovak or Czech language.

ERIN is organized by a group of young and experienced researchers and PhD students from hosting universities.

ERIN cooperates with editors of professional research journals (Acta Polytechnica, The Holistic Approach to Environment, Manufacturing Engineering, Communications - Scientific letters of the University of Zilina, Wasteforum, ERIN journal, etc.) which frequently publish selected papers from the conference.
