We hope that you are doing well and enjoying your summer vacation so far!
In this month’s blog, we would love to share with you a small but comprehensive update on our actions and events as well as inform you that we will be out of office from the (already passed) 29th of July till the 22nd of August! We will still be active on our social media and replying to emails, but expect a small delay since we are all taking some time off to cool down from such a tiring and demanding year.
Dear SPOTeurope members, It is our pleasure to send you all an update on the current developments within SPOTeurope as well as mini SPOT’s.

If you register before the 31st of May, you pay €150,-* and after this day you pay €175,-* It is good to mention that if you do register before the 31st of May, you need a code from your university. Please ask your supervision teacher for this code. Another good thing to mention is that some universities pay for the registration fee, it is good to verify this with your local university. Besides the registration, a draft version of the programme has been published! You can check this out here. * Costs are for ENOTHE member universities.
On the morning of February 20th members of our SPOT Prague were gathering filled with excitement at the metro station. This day was the day when we had the chance to see the premisses of the modern and newly reconstructed congress centre Cubex, where the COTEC- ENOTHE conference will take place this September.
I am Vanessa the Student Board Member (SBM) of SPOTeurope, a role which enables me to be part of two amazing boards – SPOTeurope and ENOTHE (European Network of Occupational Therapy in Higher Education).
Greetings everyone! I am Emmanouela (or Emma for short) and from now on I will be the new SPOT blogger!
A little bit of information for me
I was born and raised in Athens, Greece and I am currently studying Occupational Therapy as a second year student at Metropolitan College in Athens. I hadn’t heard of SPOTeurope before the workshop about internalisation, that took place at the premises of Metropolitan College at Marousi Campus. It was then that, I knew I had to get involved. This experience in combination with my volunteering experience at the annual ENOTHE conference made me realise that I want to communicate more with OT students from all over Europe and expand my view of the “occupational world”!
On behalf on the SPOTeurope board I am pleased to give you some updates after the ENOTHE annual meeting.
Last week, the 25th ENOTHE Annual Meeting was held in Athens, Greece. SPOTeurope was honored to be present to represent the european OT students. Next to networking at social events we were hosting a pre-conference workshop, a meet-up, a SPOT forum and gave a brief update about SPOT at the end in a pitch. Besides this we were also present at the student workshop about ‘Stigma’, hosted by the Greek student of AMC Metropolitian College.
