Several times each year universities and engineering schools that are collaborating in the CDIO Initiative gather to exchange ideas and experiences.

The 2012 CDIO Fall meeting will include presentation (plenary sessions) of  CDIO recognized speakers and French academic leaders in engineering education and special sessions, workshops, events, and activities. Schools and individuals interested in CDIO or wishing to discover the initiative are welcome and encouraged to attend on Tuesday and Wednesday.

On Wednesday, the agenda features:
