INEPS Congresses


Congresses of the International Network of Productive Schools (INEPS)

The IPLE supports the international development of Productive Learning and promotes the networking of Productive Learning projects within the International Network of Productive Schools (INEPS). The INEPS network began setting up its international congresses in 1990 which developed further the organisation of the network and which stabilised the integration of participating partner institutions. The INEPS congresses are central events of the network. Their purpose is to enable annual meetings of INEPS members so that they can exchange information, evaluate and plan activities within Productive Learning internationally. The changing congress locations make it possible to know the work of a particular partner project and gives impulses for its development.

The congresses have proved to be a location for educational innovation which attracts new and interested people and which is important for securing and increasing the quality of Productive Learning as well as for establishing of personal contacts between the INEPS educators.
