invited events. Proposals for contributions are
welcome from all fields of educational research.

Participants are invited to submit up to two
abstracts for papers, posters, research
workshops, round tables and symposia. All
proposals must be handed in electronically via
the online submission platform 'Conftool'. PhD
students and emerging researchers are invited to
submit proposals to the Emerging Researchers'
Group in order to participate in the Emerging
Researchers' Conference.

ECER is the annual conference held by the
European Educational Research Association (EERA).
It welcomes 2.500 scholars each year,
representing views and research traditions from
all parts of Europe.

competences and innovative skills among the next
generation. [...]
