ECNAIS : European Council of National Associations of Independent Schools

Management Committee Meeting | Seminars

Modern view on the independent school in Europe

Berlin, Germany | 15 - 17 November 2012

In the seminar, some of the topics raised in the Regional Conference in Bratislava, last April (the minutes of which were attached to the half year report of July 26th 2012), will be examined.

New in the programme is a school visit, which is made possible by Detlef Hardrop, managing director of Waldorf School Association of the state of Berlin/Brandenburg; he will also participate in the seminar.

By establishing this programme, ECNAIS works as a living knowledge centre.


In order to improve ECNAIS administrative procedures, we developed an on line registration. It’s easier, quicker and saves a lot of administrative (back-office) work. To fill the form, please use the link:
