The International Centre for Innovation in Education (ICIE) is committed to the development of all learners. Join us this summer for a quality conference program featuring Nobel Prize winners, expert keynote speakers, and thought-provoking workshops.

If you’re just doing the conference, it’s still worth it to book with us. Instead of paying for the conference all at once, you can pay in installments. You will just need to pay 25% of the total as a deposit when you register.

You’ll enjoy 24/7 support from a trip leader throughout the conference, and daily transportation to University of Helsinki from Töölö Towers.

This option only includes admission to the ICIE 2020 Conference. This is ideal for someone who wants to book their own lodging, meals, and activities.
