LubljanaWhy the world needs anthropologists
EASA Applied Anthropology Network's third edition of the symposium in Ljubljana, Slovenia, 27 November 2015


The network provides a platform for sharing information, experience and discussions regarding the applications of anthropology. It attempts to become the main European network for scientists and practitioners who believe that anthropological theories, approaches, methods and skills can also be used beyond academic boundaries – to solve problems in practice. The network focuses on the transfer of anthropological knowledge to private and public sectors and to profit and non-profit organisations. Some fields of interests of the network's members include business anthropology, design anthropology, organisational anthropology, anthropology of work, applied educational anthropology, tourism, policy-making, anthropological consulting, etc.
