17 - 19 Oct 2022 2022
ENCATC Congress

The 2022 ENCATC Congress is certainly a special one. Not only we will get back face-to-face and be able to meet each other again, but it will also be the occasion to celebrate ENCATC’s 30th anniversary and a long history of networking in Europe and beyond.

Under the theme “Internationalization in focus: theoretical, strategic, and management perspectives in education, research, policy and practice”, the 2022 ENCATC Congress will take place in Antwerp and Brussels on the 17-19 October 2022. Organized in partnership with our member the University of Antwerp, this flagship event will bring together scholars, educators, policy makers, cultural managers and artists to reflect on the present opportunities and challenges for internationalization. Following the successful editions of the past years, the 2022 edition of the Congress will be once more structured on an action-packed programme including keynotes, interactive debates, presentations, panel discussions, group sessions, and networking. It will also include the ENCATC Research Award Ceremony and the Young and Emerging Researchers Forum, one of major ENCATC contributions to the European Year of Youth 2022.
