The 16th annual International Conference of Education, Research and Innovation (ICERI 2023) was held in Seville, Spain from the 13th to the 15th of November, 2023. ICERI is well known around the world and in this year’s conference there took part in 775 participants from 60 different countries. This year’s theme was Transforming Education, Transforming Lives. Anneli Kakko, P1-Jamk NextGEng Manager, had the great pleasure to take part in, meet many earlier and possible new partners, and keep my NextGEng presentation concerning project outcomes so far and tell its present and future activities.
