Research Day

Afbeelding voor Research Day
Montessori Europe considers as one of the important elements of its mission the promotion of research and connecting of different educational communities, especially within the approach pioneered by Maria Montessori in the early 20th century. This year, the Board of Montessori Europe, in order to meet the expectations of members of the Montessori community, will dedicate the whole first day of the congress (Friday 29 September 2023) to the presentation and promotion of the achievements of scholars. This will be an excellent opportunity to hear the latest research results with the international community.
