Brussels and Antwerp, Belgium

"Internationalization in focus: theoretical, strategic and management perspectives in education, research, policy, and practice"

Under the theme “Internationalization in focus:  theoretical, strategic and management perspectives in education, research, policy, and practice”, the 2022 ENCATC Congress took place in Brussels and Antwerp on the 17-19 October 2022. 

The 2022 ENCATC Congress was certainly a special one. Not only we got back face-to-face and be able to meet each other again, but it was also the occasion to celebrate ENCATC’s 30th anniversary and a long history of networking in Europe and beyond.

This flagship event brought together more than 150 scholars, educators, policy makers, cultural managers and artists to debate together on the most pressing issues of our time, sharing a global conversation about internationalization in the contemporary world.

Following the successful editions of the past years, the 2022 edition of the Congress was once more structured on an action-packed programme including keynotes, interactive debates, presentations, panel discussions, group sessions, and networking. 

It also included the Education and Research SessionENCATC Research Award Ceremony and the Young and Emerging Researchers Forum, one of major ENCATC contributions to the European Year of Youth 2022.

The main partner for this year's edition was ENCATC member the University of Antwerp, who took special care of the scientific side of the programme. Furthermore, we are very proud to have received the patronage of the Czech presidency of the Council of the EU.

The Congress was financed through the generosity of the Creative Europe programme of the European Union. The other partners, which we thank deeply, include Bozar, the Royal Museum for Central Africa, Holland House, Creative Europe Desk Flanders, the Delegation to the European Union of the Government of Catalonia, Mad, Home of Creators, VZW Horizon 50-200 ASBL, and the Archive and Museum for the Flemish Living in Brussels (AMVB).
