European Congress of Qualitative Inquiry 6th Edition, Annual conference of the European Network of Qualitative Inquiry

    Project Details


    Annual conference of the European Network of Qualitative Inquiry that took place in January 2023 (10.01.2023-13.01.2023) in a hybrid format.

    The European Network for Qualitative Inquiry (ENQI) is a focus group for both European and International researchers to promote, discuss and develop wider conversations on qualitative, creative and mixed-methods researchers or other stakeholders. Its primary aims are: to stimulate collaboration and exchange between qualitative researchers, to create opportunities for networking, to enhance the visibility of qualitative research projects, to strengthen the level of expertise in qualitative research, and to increase the quality of qualitative research projects.

    ENQI's annual conference is the European Congress of Qualitative Inquiry (ECQI), a sister event of the International Congress Qualitative Inquiry (ICQI) held in the USA. Both these conferences are high profile events and bring together a wealth of international researchers to further develop networks and increase the profile of qualitative inquiry. Building on Portsmouth's success in the REF, the opportunity to hold this conference is a chance to springboard our research activity and for international partnerships and collaborations to develop.
