Special Interest Groups

AIESEP Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are vibrant communities formed by our members who share a passion for specific research areas. These groups play a pivotal role in enriching AIESEP’s landscape by fostering deep engagement in various research topics. SIGs offer a dynamic platform for members to deepen their research expertise, support emerging researchers, and actively participate in AIESEP’s diverse events and publications.

The size, membership, and duration of each SIG can vary, with a minimum lifespan of three years, ensuring a sustained and impactful presence. Each SIG is led by dedicated convenors who spearhead activities and guide the community, ensuring vibrant and productive interactions among members.
