Conference 2017

First Conference Workshop of the Association of European University Presses (AEUP)

Going digital in Europe – joining forces in scholarly publishing

Stockholm/Sweden, May 16-17, 2017

Please go  directly to Documentation and Programme in order to find slides of the conference.

The Conference workshop is over. We cordially express our thanks to our hosts, Stockholm University Press and the University Library of Stockholm, as well as to the keynote speakers and all the participants – university presses and representatives from more than a dozen countries. It was an intense, fruitful, and highly productive exchange, showing the power and the potential which lie within an association like AEUP.

This first AEUP Conference workshop offered European publishers linked to a university, a research institute or a learned society as well as their associates and supporters the opportunity to meet, to get to know each other, to network, and to discuss important topics of high interest.

Lobbying for these presses is the main aim of AEUP as a self-organisation of smaller presses.

The Conference workshop was open to all AEUP members (full, associate, and patron members) and other presses and supporters specifically interested in institutional publishing and/or membership.  Please get informed about modes of membership in advance and contact info@aeup.eu.

The event was supported by AEUP member fees and hosted by AEUP member Stockholm University Press at the Stockholm University Library. Therefore no special conference fees will be raised.
