Pre-EAIE Partner Event 2019 in Jyväskylä

Welcome to the Pre-EAIE Partner Event 2019 in Jyväskylä on 22-23 September 2019, co-hosted by JAMK University of Applied Sciences and University of Jyväskylä!

JAMK University of Applied Sciences (JAMK) and University of Jyväskylä (JYU) have a great pleasure to host colleagues from partner universities around the world in Jyväskylä in conjunction with the EAIE conference 2019! Our Pre-EAIE Partner Event will include both common and university-specific elements. Please have a look at the programme below and the confirmed times and places for the bus transportation. The registration to this event closed in mid-June and we received more than 60 participants (with  50 being the maximum number), which means that some of our guests who registered in time had to be put on a waiting list. If we receive cancellations, we will invite participants from the waiting list to join the event.
