SOCIAL EVENTS

The Conference offers a great opportunity to socialise and network in an informal setting as well with a series of social events:

At VIVES premises.

The Welcome Reception helps you to set the mood for the Conference. Meet your colleagues and enjoy the welcoming atmosphere. The EDEN Senior Fellow and Fellow Awards will be presented at this occasion.

The EDEN Fellow and Senior Fellow Awards will be presented at the Welcome Reception.

At VIVES premises.

VIVES Bruges holds the VIVES Archive of Games, the largest collection of games in the world, with more than 20.000 titles and many educational (party) games. In the archive, you will find the most recent (educational) games, but also some very old games are kept in the closed section. The oldest game dates back to 1810!

EDEN members and conference delegates are invited to visit the Archives, entertain with exciting games and savour good wines.

The Conference Gala Dinner will be held in the Market Halls of Bruges.

Standing on the market square of Bruges there is one building that immediately attracts your attention, the market halls and its Belfry.

They have been recognized as UNESCO World Heritage sites since 1999. The halls were built very early in the Middle Ages and were mainly used as an indoor marketplace.

The Best Research Paper Award and Young Scholar award will be presented at the Conference Gala Dinner.
