EBSN Annual Conference, 2021

EBSN Annual Conference, 2021

Innovation for Resilience – New Approaches to Basic Skills Provision in the Post-COVID Era

Following the COVID lockdown period we found it very important to offer the possibility for our members and the interested professionals to meet again physically and have a real conference. As announced earlier, together with our Maltese member and partner, the Directorate for Research, Lifelong Learning and Employability of the Ministry for Education and Employment (DRLLE) we managed to agree on the organization of a presential conference in Valletta, Malta.



For the first time the EBSN conference will be organised in a hybrid form: the conference will be held predominantly in person and we would like to encourage the physical presence of all who are able to arrange it, but for those who cannot attend we will do our best to ensure an efficient online participation.


Time: 28 – 29 October 2021

Venue: Aula Magna, University of Malta, Valletta Campus

Address: University of Malta, Valletta Campus, Triq San Pawl (St.Paul’s Street), Valletta, Malta VLT1218         

Registration deadline: 15 October 2021
