+++ Event format changed +++

Please note that due to the COVID-19 outbreak and connected travel restrictions, we need to change our planning for this conference. The conference will not be able to take place physically, we currently look into possibilities to offer an online exchange on the topic. We will inform you on this website about further planning.

You can register here to receive updates on the event directly via email.

The Networking Event takes place on Tuesday, 9 June 2020, at the Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the European Union, located in Rue Belliard 60-62, 1040 Brussels.

The networking event is addressed to higher education representatives, who work within teacher education programmes in Europe (EU member states, further Erasmus+ programme countries, Switzerland and the United Kingdom).
