CONFERENCE THEME


Conference Theme


The 12th EAPRIL Conference will take place in Hämeenlinna, Finland and will be hosted by the Häme University of Applied Sciences in close cooperation with the Federation of Universities of Applied Sciences (FUAS). As Finland has a very highly esteemed reputation when it comes to education, it is the perfect place to host the EAPRIL 2017 Conference. The welfare of Finnish society is based on education, culture and knowledge. The flexible education system and basic education security make for equity and consistency in results. In 2017, Finland will also be celebrating its 100th year independence providing an extra festive background to the EAPRIL Conference. A festive edition asks for special initiatives. The Local Organising Commiittee has composed a Special song linked to the EAPRIL Conference, 'Good for yourself', with special thanks to Dr. Kaarina Marjanen.
