      For several years, DERC (UCL Institute of Education, UK), Otto-Friedrich Universität Bamberg (Germany), and the University of Oulu (Finland) have organised an annual workshop for PhD students of the three institutions who are conducting research in the areas of development education, global learning and global citizenship. Following the foundation of the Academic Network on Global Education & Learning, this international collaboration continues, but is now delivered as part of the activities of the ANGEL network.
