Annual Thematic Conference & Exceed Conference
The Annual Thematic Conference (ATC) was an international conference organized within the framework of the ICDD to discuss and formulate strategies for building capacity and supporting research on topics related to decent work and development.
With the cooperation of eight international universities and public and civil society partners, the conference took place at a different partner university each year. It brought together prominent actors in higher education, international institutions, non-governmental organizations as well as scholars from various regions and multiple subject areas.
In the second phase of the ICDD and ‘exceed’ funding (2015-2019), the collaboration between the ‘exceed’ centres themselves became more important and intensified. ‘exceed’ Conferences, jointly organized by the ‘exceed’ centres, have superseded the ATC format. Whilst essentially retaining the same design, the conference no longer has just the ICDD network as its focus, but has become a joint endeavor of the ‘exceed’ centres that reaches out to all of the programme’s partners at the same time.
