Our Events: Symposiums and Conferences

Each year, around the spring season, the EACWP celebrates its a Symposium. And each two years, closed to the annual symposium, the EACWP celebrates an International Pedagogical Conference.

For both events one of the institutional members of the association works as coordinador, and all the representants from each institution meet in an European city. Here you can find the information about our next Symposium and, as well, the past information about the last ones. The Symposiums are open to current members or, in some cases, supported candidates in the way to be a new member. Contact us for more information!
