NEA Headquarters, Paris

The 2012 ANDES annual meeting will be organized as a Joint with JEFF-ANDES meeting.The meeting will take place in the NEA/OECD headquartes in Paris.

The actual ANDES meeting will take place on April 23-24, 2012.

It will be followed by the ANDES Governing Board on April 25, 2012.

Afterwards there will be the sessions of the JEFF NEA/OECD meetings April 25-27, 2012.
