At EDD 2022 there will be different types of sessions:

  • High-Level Panels (HLPs) are highly visible segments of the programme and feature high-profile policymakers and speakers for thought-provoking debates.
  • Lab Debates are smaller version of HLPs. They foster debates on the EDD 2022’s topics in an interactive and engaging way.
  • Project/Report Presentations are for organisers to share their latest reports and projects on a topic relevant to the EDD’s main theme.
  • Brainstorming Sessions are interactive, topic-oriented sessions that enable organisers to involve the audience in rolling-up their sleeves and proposing concrete recommendations through facilitated group-problem solving. Brainstorming sessions will only be held onsite.
  • Agora Sessions are an open, multi-purpose area where the EDD community can meet, discuss and listen to new ideas in short, 20-minute sessions held entirely onsite. Agoras are the perfect setting for more informal, highly dynamic discussions.

 

In the Community Guide  you will find more information about each session type, the milestones and deadlines, and the facilities offered during the event. 

Please note that while the EDD 2022 will be a hybrid event, Session Organisers and moderators/facilitators must attend in person onsite. Also, we strongly urge speakers to attend in person onsite.

The EDD venue in Brussels and its session spaces will be accessible to all including people with disabilities.
