This year’s FEAD Community Annual Conference organised by the European Commission will take place at La Tricoterie in Brussels on the 10th of March.

The conference is the first mutual learning event of a cycle of capacity-building seminars aimed at improving the FEAD delivery at national, regional and local levels. The conference will provide an opportunity to take stock of FEAD’s achievements to date and discuss future challenges to be addressed. It will provide a space for participants to share experiences from the ground and to shape the upcoming capacity-building seminars dedicated to exploring promising practices and innovative solutions to common issues.

Following the significant contribution of our members to the FEAD’s network activities in the previous years, Eurodiaconia has been asked to join an Advisory Group to contribute to the FEAD mutual learning activities post-2019.


Registration for this conference is mandatory, and places will be subject to availability and confirmation by the European Commission.

Please register at your earliest convenience and no later than the 7th of February for the event via this link.
