The ACO Conferences
Each year, the MWP-ACO Conferences provide a forum for reflection, analysis and debate on the current state of the 'European Research and Higher Education Area', taking into account, in particular, the perspective of young researchers in the Social Sciences and Humanities.
Through these conferences, the MWP-ACO explores and compares the structures of the academe across countries, discusses crucial questions related to the international mobility of scholars and monitors the development of research and funding opportunities for young scholars.
