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
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 all the participants – university presses and representatives from more than a dozen countries. it was an intense, fruitful, and highly productive exchange. It showed the power and potential which lies within an association like AEUP.
We will soon present a short documentation on this website. Slides of presentations will be linked in the programme.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
The conference language was English.
