Past ERI Conferences

The IAFOR Conference on Educational Research & Innovation (ERI) brings together delegates from many different national, cultural and linguistic backgrounds to present new research and exchange ideas. This exceptional platform welcomes speakers and delegates working in any area of education, from academics and theorists to policymakers and practitioners, in both the private and public sectors, for challenging debate and stimulating discussions around the latest concepts and newest approaches.

Held across four continents, IAFOR’s education conferences attract more than 2,000 delegates a year from more than 100 countries. Education as a discipline drives the purpose of the forum by bringing alive the notions of the international, the intercultural and the interdisciplinary through scholarly, political and personal encounters with some of the most important academics and practitioners working in the field, as well as the thought leaders of tomorrow.

IAFOR's education conferences are organised in partnership with some of the world’s leading universities and schools of education, including Birkbeck, University of London, UK; University College London (UCL), UK; Waseda University, Japan; University of Sussex, UK; University of Indonesia, Indonesia; and Virginia Tech, USA.
