Program

Inform, challenge, enjoy, connect

The ESHA 2016 conference is not just a conference.  We will inspire you at the key notes sessions, challenge you during the parallel tracks en connect you with colleagues around Europe during the cafe drinks and the school visits.
The conference is organised at the prestigious Vrijthof Theatre and several nearby hotels. During the breaks, our guides will show you the city and its many cultural hot spots.
You will fly home with new ideas, new friends and great memories
