The first EIBA workshop that gathered IB scholars from the CEE region was organised on 12 October 2016 at the Corvinus University Budapest.

At the 2016 EIBA elections Anže Burger from CIR was elected as the new National Representative for Slovenia. His term will start in 2017, when the next EIBA conference will also be organised (the latter will take place in Milan, Italy, between 13 and 16 December).
