Lejre – official founding

March 14th - 16th, 2003, the members of EXARC convened in Lejre, Denmark. This Lejre meeting (5th EXARC meeting) formed a challenge because of the attempts to produce food for thought on content.

Oerlinghausen, a group of 15

In February 2001, the first European meeting was organised by the initiative group, in Oerlinghausen, Germany. Fifteen participants from six different countries convened.
