ICO invites all ICO PhDs to register for ICO’s international research event for PhD’s: The ICO International Spring School 2020, at the abbey of Rolduc in the south of the Netherlands.

During this week you will participate in workshops given by international researchers, and you will be able to learn from the keynote addresses of two renowned scholars in the field of educational sciences. You will also present your work to each other, after which experienced researchers and your peers will provide you with feedback. There is also an extensive social programme, which allows you to really get to know your international colleagues and build up contacts for life.

We are expecting PhD students from the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Finland, Sweden, Norway, and other countries. Are you going to be one of them?
