About CEC

What is CEC?

The Central European Convention is the major international event of the Central European Region happening twice every year. Members of all CER countries meet to learn from each other and discuss future plans.

History of CEC

The first Central European Convention (CEC) was held in May 1998 in Tuheljske Toplice, Croatia, on the initiative of Thomas Haim, former National Secretary IAESTE Austria, and Mario Kauzlaric, former National Secretary IAESTE Croatia. Because of the great success, the CEC is being held two times a year, in a rotation schedule - so each country will organize the event every three years.


The Central European Region is a communication platform from 10 countries, to strengthen the collaboration between the member countries of IAESTE and help each other to reach the aims and mission of IAESTE Asbl, through organizing workshops for the members of the LCs and work together on international projects.
