This year is EPR’s 30th anniversary and we are excited to jointly organise our celebratory Annual Conference with founding EPR member the Centre de Réadaptation de Mulhouse (CRM), Mulhouse, France. The Annual Conference will bring together EPR’s members and guests for a day and half of celebrations, interaction and inspiration, on the theme of sustainability – eco-innovation, opportunities in the green economy, organisational capacity and more!

We hope that you will be able to join us in person to celebrate our 30th year, for networking, mutual learning and expert inputs.

Aims of the Conference

  • Supporting service providers in their green transition
  • Showcasing social enterprises working in the green and circular economy

  • Celebrate what it means to be part of the EPR community and how the network will continue to grow and thrive for the benefit of our members!


The event will be varied with plenty of interactive sessions for participants to connect and share challenges and good practices, both in  formal and informal settings. There will be plenary sessions, workshops and networking opportunities including an organisational speed networking session! We will be welcoming you to Mulhouse with an evening reception to savour the best of French wines, study visits to CRM services and a gala dinner and dancing.

We have lined up a range of speakers both external and from within the EPR community with expertise to promote good practice, mutual learning and understanding of the trends in the areas of eco-innovation, Green economy and enterprises, social inclusion, sustainability related to staffing and recruitment and much much more.
