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 (DRLLE) from the Ministry for Education, MFED we managed to agree on the organization of a presential conference in Valletta, Malta.
For the first time the EBSN conference was organised in a hybrid form.
