European Access Network Annual Conference
Giessen University, Germany
20 September 2017 - 22 September 2017
The European Access Network (EAN) annual conference represents a unique international experience of diversity in action. Hosted each year by a different member institution or organisation in Europe, the conference brings together policy-makers, academics, practitioners, researchers, and administrators from around the world to address key issues in access and widening participation, diversity and inclusion. It also engages the participation of students, student support services, student organisations and employers.
Our annual conference provides a platform and opportunity for those committed to equity, diversity and inclusion to discuss and debate topical issues, learn from one another, develop initiatives and make new European and international contacts. In particular it aims:
- to stimulate European and international collaboration to widen access and participation
- to share experiences and promote good practice in creating an inclusive higher education
- to disseminate research findings to a wider audience
- to contribute to the development of equitable tertiary education systems in Europe and beyond.
