April 28 - May 1, 2015


Pre-registration is closed. It is possible to register at the registration desk in Wageningen, The Netherlands.

To be organized in conjunction with the conference of the Association of International Agricultural and Extension Education, which will take place on the same dates on the same location.

Conference Theme: Competence and Excellence in Extension and Education

The 22nd European Seminar on Extension and Education (ESEE) will be held in Wageningen and hosted by the Education and Competence Studies Group (ECS) of Wageningen University.

The conference will provide an opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences among university staff, private and professional personnel and others who are involved in Extension and Education. This is also an excellent opportunity to look back at the development of competencies and their impact on Extension and Education.. We would like to exchange thoughts about the development of our field and also to look forward towards the future. Whereas the input during the conference will be predominantly given by researchers and academics, professionals from extension and education practice are equally welcome. We will make an effort that practitioners will benefit from and contribute to the program.
