About the event
The Central European Convention (CEC) is the most anticipated IAESTE event happening twice a year in Central Europe. Participants come here to meet fellow members of our international organization and learn from each other.
The first CEC was held in May 1998 in Tuheljske Toplice, Croatia, on the initiative of Thomas Haim, former National Secretary IAESTE Austria, and Mario Kauzlaric, former National Secretary IAESTE Croatia. Because of the great success, the CEC is being held two times a year, in a rotation schedule - so each country will organize the event every four years.
Student-run IAESTE organization in Central Europe started a Regional Initiative called Central European Region (CER), in order to enhance the cooperation, knowledge sharing between neighbours and provide opportunities for their members.
Since 1948 IAESTE has been providing young science and engineering students from around the world paid, course related work experience. Similarly, IAESTE has been a source of high quality trainees for companies and institutions in more than 80 countries worldwide.
In IAESTE we are committed to fostering international understanding and impacting on the development of young people through international exchange. Our core values of friendship, trust, respect, professionalism, development and intercultural cooperation serve as a foundation for our strong organisational culture and as the principles that guide all our work and daily activities.
