On this website, you will find information about our Association and information about our annual meetings. These meetings are very important in the life of EAPL, a chance for many of our members to get together and share their ideas and experience, research findings and plans with colleagues from all over Europe – and the world – who have very similar interests. This year and due to COVID-19, the conference has to be postponed. For recent news and details go to our “Conferences” tab.
We trust you will find this website informative. We hope too that you will enjoy being a member of EAPL and benefit from the knowledge and experience of a like-minded community of practitioners and academics.
