General Assembly 2017

FEDE General Assembly 2017

Lisbon – 16 and 17 March 2017

As a body of the FEDE, the General Assembly meets once a year to discuss the accounts and management of the previous financial year (Article 12 of the Statute).
The annual session of the General Assembly enables the organisation of workshops in addition to its primary legal purpose.

These workshops are a great opportunity for our members to exchange information and ideas on specific trends and issues related to higher education and professional training. It is also a time for networking and creating links between the FEDE schools, one of the main objectives of these workshops.

Lisbon is waiting for you!

Lisbon is a city of history with multiple cultural influences, of culture and modernity. It is a city best explored on foot in order to be astonished by a thousand years of history; to discover its authentic charms down a winding alleyway, lulled by melancholy-infused Fado tunes.
A city of seven hills, the Portuguese capital has drastically changed: architectural renewal, the growing cultural influence of its museums and heritage, and, the emergence of places for contemporary creations.
Discovering Lisbon, is also synonymous with getting lost while wandering around its narrow streets in its historical neighborhoods, tasting the famous pasteis de nata (a traditional Portuguese pastry), riding its tramways from a different era and enjoying, from the heights of its miradouros, a splendid panoramic view of the city and the Tagus River.
In the evening, as the sun sets, when restaurant terraces start filling up, when the lights of the bars light up again, when the small streets of Bario Alto come alive with activities, it is another face of Lisbon that is revealed – that of a young, dynamic and lively European capital. An effervescent city.
