5th EPATH Conference: Killarney, Ireland

EPATH will host their fifth European conference ‘Strengthening the standards: communities and research‘ from April 26-28, 2023 in Killarney, Ireland. The conference will start on Wednesday at 9h00 and will end on Friday at 13h30 (Irish Time).

The bid to host the 2023 EPATH Conference was won by TENI. TENI is a non-profit member-driven organisation, founded in 2006. The governance is provided by a volunteer Board and operations are led by the Chief Executive and staff. Community engagement is an essential part of TENI’s identity and their mandate is based on a substantial membership, which elects the Board and is involved in long-term strategic planning. We’re looking forward to work with them!

TENI received a lot of local and national support in developing and presenting the bid for Ireland. The following organisations and services expressed their support for the bid: Health Service Executive, HSE Social Inclusion, Health Service Executive Kerry, TransParenCI, Listowel Family Centre, Fáilte Ireland, the Kerry Convention Bureau. the Kerry County Council, and the Killarney Chamber of Tourism & Commerce.
