Every year, INTED brings together more than 700 delegates from 80 different countries, providing the opportunity to present own projects, research and innovative methods in teaching and learning. It is a platform to discuss the latest developments in the field of teaching and learning methodologies, educational projects, innovations and new technologies applied to education and research, with experts from all over the world.

Among the various sessions and panels of the interesting and large conference program, E-Space was present. Prof Fred Truyen (KU Leuven, coordinator of the E-Space Photography pilot and president of Photoconsortium) didn’t miss the opportunity to give a lecture about the contribution of Europeana and Europeana Space to education during the session dedicated to Open Educational Resources.
