Every year the Symposium offers representatives of institutions and organizations dealing with the history of the 20th century an opportunity to network and to exchange ideas and experiences among their peers from across Europe. The goal: to inspire new initiatives and foster international collaborations.
This year we are meeting to discuss the role of history and memory in the creation of contemporary European identity. Through tailored round tables and panel discussions with established experts, we will reflect upon the current state and future perspectives of European memory.
Dedicated networking sessions are also included. Each participant willing to introduce their institution or project to a wider audience, may apply to take part in turbo presentations. Moreover, during a Q&A session experienced project coordinators will discuss best practices and give advice on how to carry out educational and social initiatives.
