Dear Friends and Colleagues,

You are warmly invited to the 13th Biennial conference of the European Research Network About Parents In Education (ERNAPE), which is planned to be held from 27th  to  29th  October 2021: ERNAPE-Nijmegen 2021.

The 2021 conference is hosted by Radboud University Nijmegen and the Faculty of Social Sciences’ research institutes Behavioural Science Institute and Radboud Social Cultural Research.

Conference call

This conference will bring together researchers, scholars, educational professionals, students and others who are interested in the role of parents in education. In the tradition of ERNAPE we are planning an exciting programme of speakers, symposia and research papers and aim to create meeting places, both formal and informal, for the sharing of knowledge, discussions, debate and learning.

Online submission

Online submission of proposals will be open between November 1st 2020 and April 1st 2021. Authors will receive the Conference Scientific Committee’s decisions on the acceptance of their proposal by June 1st  2021. Click here to go to the submission page.

Covid-19 situation

Because it is still unclear what the Covid-19 situation will be next year the decision regarding the conference will be made by the ERNAPE steering committee in January 2021. The committee will consider to hold the conference as planned, to organise a virtual conference, or to postpone the conference to 2022. We will inform you about the committee’s decision before February 1st 2021. If we decide that the conference will be held as planned or online in 2021, the registration for the conference will be opened on February 1st. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that we can meet each other in Nijmegen.

On behalf of the local organizing committee we look forward to welcoming you to ERNAPE-Nijmegen 2021.

Eddie Denessen

Chair of the Local Organising Committee
