Past ECQI Editions

ECQI 2024

We are calling for expressions of interest to host the 2024 edition of the ECQI Conference. Applicants should have attended at least one previous edition of ECQI to familiarize them with the ethos. Commercial companies hosting events cannot apply without securing an academic partner or member of the network as a chair. To secure geographical diversity, we are particularly encouraging partners from East Europe to consider an application.

We look forward to receiving your application (

Dear Members of the European Network Qualitative Inquiry,

The Norway ECQI2021 team has consistently and carefully monitored the situation with the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), paying close attention to any developments, and following the guidance of the World Health Organization (WHO), national and local public health authorities. We are globally facing unique circumstances due to the pandemic, a situation of limited predictability of how the situation will evolve in the following months. In the framework, however, of this existing fluidity in several sectors worldwide, impacting the realization of any meeting/conference (ex. international travelling, national restrictions for incoming visitors, measures for any group meeting, financial insecurity for participants), we have decided to cancel the realization of the ECQI 2021 in Tromsø. Given that our absolute priority is the health of colleagues, associates and event participants at such unprecedented and challenging times. Prof. Karin Hannes will collaborate with the ENQI steering group for the realization of a virtual congress edition in February 2022. The dates will be 2nd to 4th of February 2022.The preconference day is planned for the 1st of February.

Stay Safe,Stay Healthy and Stay Positive! Thank you for your understanding. 

On behalf of
ECQI team Dr Rita Sørly, NORCE and Dr Marcela Douglas, The Arctic university of Norway
 and Co-steering group members Angelo Benozzo, Marco Gemignano, Philia Issari, Carol Taylor & Jonathan Wyatt 

Prof. Dr. Karin Hannes
