Registration is now open: ICO ISS 2021

The online international networking conference for all PhD candidates in Educational Sciences
March 16-18, 2021

We are pleased to invite all PhD’s in the Educational Sciences to the online ICO International Spring School (ISS) 2021, an international conference and an educational event.

The online ICO International Spring School is a small scale international event for PhD candidates in the educational sciences. Because the ICO ISS is limited in numbers, and focuses on the PhD’s, ICO creates safe environment which makes being there an unique experience. During this event you will participate in a workshop given by international researchers, and you will be able to learn from the keynote address of a renowned scholar in the field. You will also present your work to each other, after which experienced researchers and your peers will provide you with feedback. Finally, you can join the online social programme, which allows you to really get to know your international colleagues.

To guarantee everyone’s safety and good health, it seems that it will not yet be possible to meet in person in March 2021. However, by going online we will have no restrictions in making it a fun and successful meeting for all attendants.

Besides ICO PhD Members from the Netherlands and Belgium we are expecting PhD candidates from all over Europe to join us at our virtual venue. Are you going to be one of them?

What to expect:

  • Participation in a workshop related to methodology and themes within the educational sciences; 
  • Share your research in a paper, poster, or a round table presentation,  and receive and provide feedback;
  • Join the social programme, which allows you to really get to know your peers

Registration fee:

  • Participation is free for ICO PhD Members: a membership fee is paid annually for the full ICO educational programme. The ICO Spring School is part of that programme.
  • Non-ICO PhD candidates – Registration fee  –  € 150
