Annual Conference 2021/Prague – register for on site or online presence!

Dear Colleagues,

Today is the last day for early bird registration for our 2021 Annual Conference and General Assembly to be held from 25 to 27 August 2021 in a hybrid format. Before you leave for the well-deserved summer break, please sing up, also if travelling to Prague is not possible for you. We need you for discussing ‘the position of the profession in the EU’ and harmonising the education in this context. With Steven HollJenny B. OsuldsenEric Luiten and Inaki Alday as our keynote speakers followed by panel sessions, we will have in-depth and encompassing discussions.

During the General Assembly on Friday, 27 August, elections for the council will take place – meet the candidates here. Further information for the GA can be found here.

The second EAAE/ACSA Teachers Conference from 24 to 25 June was a very successful event that was prepared and executed with strong motivation, commitment, and professionalism. It is another milestone on our mission to improve the quality of education, strengthening the community of educators and researchers and sharing our insights, knowledge and inspirations. On behalf of EAAE, I extend my gratitude to Pratt Institute, to Oslo School of Architecture and Design and to ACSA.

Please find a survey, prepared by SCHOSA and the RIBA with the support of EAAE, that we kindly ask the Heads of School to complete. The results will hopefully help us improve our courses and provide evidence which will help us maintain our resources.

Wishing you a nice holiday and looking forward to seeing you in Prague – virtually or in person!

Best regards,
Oya Atalay Franck
President EAAE
