Welcome to our beautiful city of Dubrovnik,
the UNESCO World Heritage Site on the Croatian Adriatic coast!

The city of Dubrovnik is famous for its astonishing and unique beauty and long history. The Dubrovnik Old Town walking tour (i.e., sightseeing of historical places and buildings in Dubrovnik) is offered to the participants to fully enjoy the cultural tour around the old city. The town of Ston and Neretva river valley day tour (i.e., bus trip to a nearby town of Ston, famous for the sea salt and oyster cultivation, and the visit to the Neretva river valley to single-handedly pick the ripe and fragrant mandarins right in the mandarin groves where mandarins are grown) are offered to the conference participants as a second choice. The participants will have to register and pay the social events fee. For those participants who would enjoy to individually explore Dubrovnik, we will provide all needed additional information about cultural and gastro events of their particular interest (i.e., historical venues, cultural highlights, wine, cheese, figs, fine salts, oysters, etc.). The 1st Thematic ECHA Conference will also host the 3rd Summit of the Youth Platform of the European Talent Support Network (ETSN).

We planned for the Social dinner on 17th October 2019 for the conference participants. The Social dinner will take place in the very heart of Dubrovnik. It will be announced on the conference website, and participants will have to register and pay the Social dinner fee in order to participate in this event.

In conclusion, the 1st Thematic ECHA Conference in Dubrovnik will offer these social events:

A. The 3rd Summit of the Youth Platform of the European Talent Support Network

B. The sightseeing tour, or the day trip, for conference participants to enjoy:

a. the Dubrovnik Old Town walking tour, or
