Dr Pat Davies in the International Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame
Pat Davies' career has been recently celebrated during the International Adult and Continuing Education Hall of Fame ceremony in New Orleans (US), 10 November 2018. André Schläfli former head of SVEB (Swiss Federation for Adult Learning) presented Pat Davies with the award. This was very fitting because he was a member of the Transfine project (2002-2003), led by University of Lille, but coordinated by Pat Davies as Executive Secretary of eucen, as well as a keynote speaker in eucen's conference in Brno (CZ) in 2003. 

Attached you can find the programme of the event. You can read on page 7 Pat's brief profile and achievements.

Pat has worked in different ways with eucen throughtout eucen's whole history. She was the named representive of City University for a number of years, became elected as member of the Steering Committee and served as Treasurer. Later on (in 2000), when she was not representing any member university and her mandate had finished, she was employed by eucen as Executive Secretary and Projects Director. Her vision and wise guidance has been an inspiration to all of us. Congratulations, Pat!!

Some other friends of eucen who have received this award in the past are Alfredo Soiero (University of Porto), Maria Slowey (Dublin City University) and Balazs Nemeth (University of Pecs) amongt others.
