Elinet at the European Conference on Literacy 2022

Elinet will make several contributions (General Assembly, Symposiums, Papers & Poster sessions) to the European Conference on Literacy and the 46th Annual Conference taking place in Dublin, Ireland from July 4th to July 6th.

ELINET Fifth Annual General Assembly 

Sunday, July 3th 17.00-18.00 Meeting of Members of the EUROPEAN LITERACY POLICY NETWORK ASSOCIATION e.V. (ELINET ASSOCIATION). Fortunately, this year we will finally again be able to organize a face-to-face meeting during the European Literacy Conference in Dublin. As we will have no elections, no amendments to Statutes or other formal business this year, the ELINET Board wants to keep reports and updates as short as possible (about 45 Min.) and use the main part of our time for reflection and exchange about the current status and the future of our work.

Date: Sunday, 3rd of July 2022
Time: 17.00 – 19.00 Local Time
Location: Room E206, Institute of Education, DCU St Patrick’s Campus, Drumcondra, Dublin 9
