How to join in
Academicians are encouraged to attend either a single visit, a category of visits, or more to offer expertise, knowledge and insights. The visits are a rewarding way to contribute to the Academy’s work whilst gaining valuable CPD learning from some exceptional places.

Academicians joining an Assessment Team will unfortunately be required to fund their own travel and accommodation expenses.

The European City of the Year visits
There are a limited number of places available on the visits for The European City of the Year Award. Please express your interest in this category as soon as possible. For those who have already expressed an interest in participating, we will be in touch very soon.
