  • After the opening speeches, participants could chose from a variety of parallel workshops introducing specific issues from the working fields of ELIANT.
  • IASWECE and ECSWE jointly organised the workshop Education: The Digital Dilemma – To Use or to Be Used, that featured a speech by Prof. Dr. Paula Bleckmann on responsible media use and panel contributions from both academics and EU officials.
