We are very excited that the European Educational Research Agency has decided to fund a pilot project to bring Learning Toolbox for ePosters to their ECER flagship conference this year in Bolzano, Italy. Participating in this pilot are poster authors from the VETNET network, one of the most active of the more than thirty networks around which the ECER conference is organised.

In addition to ePosters, we also want to trial hybrid posters and presentations, an idea brought to us by our colleague Pekka Kämäräinen from the Institut Technik und Bildung (ITB) at the University of Bremen. EERA will have their own domain and showcase for this pilot and we are going to develop video help material for the authors. We are also going to run a webinar in August for authors and offer first-line support to help with creating and publishing the ePosters.

We would like to express our gratitude to Pekka Kämäräinen for his expertise and leadership in shaping the pilot project and to Christof Nägele, the VETNET link convener, for his unwavering support and advocacy of the ePoster pilot with EERA. A big thank you also to our other colleagues and friends from ITB: Lars Heinemann, Ludger Deitmer, and Werner Müller!
