Every three years ENIUGH convenes the European Congress in World and Global History. Since the inaugural congress in 2005 it has developed into an outstanding meeting place for scholars in the fast developing fields of world, global and transnational history and the adjacent disciplines. The number of participants has increased steadily, and the success of the congress can be explained, among other factors, by its openness both to young and experienced scholars alike.

The congress has become a forum for researchers to present and discuss their latest findings as well as to inform each other about new organisational patterns in the fields of teaching and research. It offers information and expertise on undergraduate and graduate teaching as well as PhD-programmes and provides the opportunity to develop emerging research agendas in transnational teams and to get the latest news about European and various national funding schemes.

A book exhibition, a presentation of teaching programmes and a variety of social events accompany the scientific programme.

ENIUGH is constantly striving to create an intellectually inspiring environment for its congresses in cooperation with local partners.

The first congress was held in 2005 in Leipzig with about 300 participants from all over Europe and other parts of the world, while the second was held in Dresden in 2008, bringing together about 400 participants.
