Seminars & Conferences

‘Thematic’ or ‘expert’ seminars and conferences are events organised either solely by ESPAnet or ESPAnet National Associations, and often jointly by ESPAnet and another organisation or network. Seminars and conferences tend to be devoted to a particular topic, theoretical perspective or methodological issue. Often based on invitations to speakers and discussants seminar organisers are generally open to additional participants interested in the seminar’s theme.
