This event marked AGU’s third consecutive participation in EAIE, after Glasgow in 2015 and Liverpool in 2016.

This year’s edition, organized under the theme “A Mosaic of Cultures”, welcomed around 6500 participants from over 90 countries.

Turkey alone had close to 250 participants and many of the country’s universities were represented; a good example of Turkey’s involvement in international higher education and of its intent to further develop connections overseas.
