But it's not just that. EGOS is also a hub for interaction, exchange, and professional growth for researchers and scholars from around the globe. The Annual Colloquium, is a global event that attracts over 2000 delegates from more than 60 different countries each year. It's a unique platfrom to share ideas, network, present ongoing research, and discuss future directions, all within a stimulating and dynamic environment. In other words, the EGOS Annual Colloquium is where knowledge meets community and research becomes a collective and engaging experience.

EGOS Principles and Values

At the heart of the EGOS Colloquium are the principles of sustainability and inclusion, which present a considerable challenge for organizers of the event. We firmly believe in the potential of hosting an event that leaves a significant cultural, social, and economic impact while maintaining a strong commitment to environmental sustainability. Cagliari is the perfect setting to showcase this potential. With this in mind, we have implemented an organizational and communication framework that champions sustainable practices and COXNUMX offset initiatives. Our goal is to minimize environmental impact, proving that sustainability is within reach, even when orchestrating large-scale events.

The 39th EGOS Colloquium is sponsored by the Autonomous Region of Sardinia.
