+++ 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.

The Policy Dialogue takes place on Monday, 8 June 2020, at the Representation of the State of Baden-Württemberg to the European Union, located in Rue Belliard 60-62, 1040 Brussels.

The policy dialogue will follow-up on the EU council conclusions that the Croatian EU presidency plans to introduce at the May Education Council on the topic of teachers, including teacher education. The policy dialogue is exclusively addressed to representatives of ministries dealing with teacher education in Europe (EU member states, further Erasmus+ programme countries, Switzerland and the United Kingdom).

Participation is on invitation only, which will be sent via the Permanent Representations / missions in Brussels. Ministerial representatives of the German Länder are equally invited.

For further questions, please contact teacher-conference@daad.de.
