ADEE - Association for Dental Education in Europe
Welcome to Rīga and the 40th ADEE Annual Meeting
Emerging New Approaches to Dental Education’
28th-30th August 2014
We live in a rapidly changing world. New technologies are entering our daily lives – with teachers using them in teaching methodologies and training young professionals to apply them in dentistry. There is therefore a need to explore new approaches to dental education.
The 40th Annual Meeting of the Association for Dental Education in Europe (ADEE) offers an exciting opportunity for dental educators and students to share knowledge and experiences related to the impact of various approaches to dental education in different countries.
Rīga Stradiņš University has been a proud member of ADEE since 2001, and we are very honoured to host the meeting which will take place in the Baltic country for the first time.
2014 brings remarkable changes for Latvia with the Euro as its new currency. What is more, this year Rīga holds the title of the European Capital of Culture which offers an exciting calendar of cultural events. Rīga is a city where everyone can feel welcomed by its friendly atmosphere; enjoy the history of the Old City and the Art Nouveau architecture.
It is my pleasure to extend to you all a very warm welcome to ADEE 2014 and Rīga.
