General Assembly

Why a General Assembly?

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.
