University of Giessen, host of the EAN 26th Annual Conference

Founded in 1607, Justus Liebig University Giessen (JLU) is a research university with a long-standing tradition which attracts more than 28,000 students. Its commitment to diversity and the development of international programmes makes it a perfect host for this year's EAN conference, which will look into current factors and dynamics that influence the social dimension of HE and the educational gap within the European Union.

Conference Theme

A detailed conference description is currently being built with the contribution of our European members and will be available shortly.

Some of the topics we will explore :

  • Access to HE for refugees
  • First-generation students
  • Educational gap between Eastern and Western Europe

Conference Registration

Registrations are due to open in early April and as the EAN is moving to the University of Edinburgh, please note that online registrations will now go through our new host's e-store. The procedure will remain as simple as setting up a personal account through e-pay, and the EAN team will be there to guide and support you as usual.

Call for Contributions

Call for proposals opens in April.
Guidelines for presenters will be available here shorlty.
