  • For BONUS Events organised by local associations, universities and institutes and recommended by EAMBA Exchange, see the bottom of this webpage.

Each EAMBA Exchange meeting is a structured dialogue focusing on a theme that is relevant for the teachers’ community.
The Exchange service team  – main organizer of the meetings  – chairs the sessions, whenever possible together with a guest-host from a local member association.

In general, the dialogues are conducted in a charming concert of voices colouring the English language with local styles and accents. We are attentive to wishes for translation. In 2021-2022 we are exploring ways for more languages and translation, your suggestions are welcome.

For all other information and for suggestions feel welcome to contact the Exchange service team at exchange@eamba.net
