Exhibit at EECERA 2019

European Early Childhood Education Research Association (EECERA) is an independent, self-governing, international association which promotes and disseminates multi-disciplinary research on early childhood and its applications to policy and practice. 

EECERA’s Conference is the largest early childhood research conference in Europe providing an exceptional forum and network for scholars, policy makers, researchers and practitioners. Every year the event brings together 1000+ delegates from across Europe and beyond.

The theme of the 29th Annual EECERA Conference is ‘Early Years, making it count’.

At EECERA 2017 in Bologna, the thousand assembled Early Years researchers were challenged by the keynote speakers to become advocates for the field, to take part in the debate and to be less passive in the face of external, often uninformed pressures. This year’s Conference theme takes up that challenge particularly around the issue of measurement and accountability. ‘What counts’ and ‘Who is making it count and why?’ If we believe in ‘high quality’ programs and services, then there must be accountability and evaluation but what form should ‘quality assessment’, ’quality control’, ‘quality assurance’, ‘quality improvement’ and similar concepts and terms take? What qualitative and quantitative measures do we need? What are the significant ‘impacts’ and ‘outcomes’? Can these be universalized into metrics or curricula to provide global comparative data? Who and what counts for children’s development in the complex inter-relationship between health and well-being, parenting and high-quality services? And how far can the measurement of child outcomes be a proxy for system accountability? It is this broad and topical theme which we hope to explore in Thessaloniki.

The 2019 Conference is hosted in partnership with University of Thessaloniki and is taking place in Thessaloniki, Greece.

The full programme is still in outline, but will include high quality keynotes and multiple symposia where practitioners and researchers will present and debate their latest ECEC research, in line with the conference theme and strands.

We have a number of exhibition and sponsorship options available, including a ‘Build your own’ option for those that wish to customise their conference package.
