ECER Hosts

Hosts of ECER 2021

ECER 2021 and the Emerging Researchers’ Conference are jointly hosted by EERA and the local organising committee of the University of Geneva and the Valais University of Teacher Education, supported by SSRE. EERA is hugely indebted to the local organizing committee for their ongoing contribution to the conference content and as regards the shift to an online event. We look forward to inspiring sessions on the Swiss Education System.

The local committee in charge of hosting this year’s ECER is a team of thirteen academics and professionals belonging to the University of Geneva and the Valais University of Teacher Education. The two institutions, situated in different cantons, have established an official partnership to prepare the best possible congress.

The aim of the ‘European Educational Research Association’ (EERA) is to further high quality educational research for the benefit of education and society. High quality research not only acknowledges its own context but also recognises wider, transnational contexts with their social, cultural and political similarities and differences. EERA membership is made up of more than 35 national and regional Educational Research Associations from all parts of Europe.

The association’s activities, such as the annual conference, season schools for emerging researchers and publishing, build on and promote free and open dialogue and critical discussion and take a comprehensive and interdisciplinary approach to theory, methods and research ethics.
