European Research Network on Philanthropy

Annual meetings, biennial conferences and quarterly newsletters

In order to facilitate communications and cooperation between ERNOP members and other philanthropy researchers interested in European philanthropy research, ERNOP organizes a biennial international conference. The conference aims to be the leading philanthropy conference in Europe. Since 2008, conferences have taken place in Amsterdam, Louvain, Bupapest, Vienna, Riga, Paris and Copenhagen. On 4-5 July 2019, ERNOP will have its 9th ERNOP Conference in Basel, Switzerland.

More information about the last conference can be found at the conference webpage.

Besides these conferences, ERNOP members meet once a year at the ISTR conference. Directors of academic research centers on philanthropy are also invited to A Gathering of Academic research centers on Philanthropy in Europe (AGAPE). A next AGAPE will take place on October 18-19 2018 and will be hosted by the Chair of Philanthropy at ESSEC Business School in Paris.

The other primary platform for ERNOP members to exchange information about their research and developments in the field of philanthropy is the quarterly ERNOP Newsletter. Newsletters are send to (affiliated) members and all interested. To become a member, please fill in the registration form. You can also only sign up for the Newsletter.
