European Encyclopedia Conference 2019

For the first time, many encyclopedias from across Europe and North America met to share experiences about how we address common challenges.

The Great Norwegian Encyclopedia (SNL), in cooperation with the European Parliamentary Research Service and The Mission of Norway to the European Union, organised the event, which we believe was the largest meetup of encyclopedias from Europe and North America ever.

The two-day conference was held on October 10 and 11, 2019 at Norway House, Rue Archimède 17, just across the street from the European Commission Berlaymont in Brussels. It was open to selected encyclopedic institutions from across Europe and North America. The goal was to get to know each other and to find possible areas of cooperation and learning.
