Access to Events
A list of past and future events is available here.
Many of our events are by invitation only (particularly the academic conferences), however if there are any events that you as a institutional member are particularly interested in, you can contact us at any time and we will investigate the possibility of attendance. We will also share materials (papers, slides, videos) from our events with our members whenever possible.
The Annual Members’ Meeting usually takes place in Spring (as an example, please see the 2018 event programme on the ECGI website here). All members are welcome to attend this event (currently free of charge) and it is a good opportunity to meet with other members, learn more about ECGI’s plans for the future, and engage with leading scholars.
