Over 200 people have already registered for #EUPRIO2015 in Perugia, but there is still time to join EUPRIO next month when they hold their annual conference once again in a beautiful part of Italy, from September 6-9.

The deadline for registrations is Friday, August 21 – see here for details including travel and accommodation.

This is the same deadline now set for the EUPRIO Awards – see here for more information.

Plea for more time accepted

So far entries for the Awards have been received from France, Italy, Germany, England, Sweden and Belgium, with requests from others for a little more time.

Sys Christina Vestergaard, chair of the judging panel, said: “After checking with the other judges and the conference organisers, we have agreed to move the deadline to August 21, to coincide with the final deadline for registering for #EUPRIO2015.

“We hope this will enable all those with outstanding campaigns and projects to show off their work and perhaps win the top prize, which includes free registration, plus accommodation and travel to next year’s conference for the winning entry.”

Everything in place

Paola Claudia Scioli, the Italian steering committee member and one of the main conference organisers, said: “Everything is in place for a great conference, with more parallel sessions and workshops than ever before.

“The social programme should prove very attractive, with the Assisi nearly fully booked. There are still places on chocolate tour of Perugia, where we will visit a famous maestro chocolatier and learn whether promoting chocolate has any lessons for us to learn in marketing higher education.

Registrations for the conference can be made up to August 21, and payments are required before the conference starts,” said Paola.
