What's in a visit/seminar?

An OECD Seminar accommodates a minimum of 20 participants, and up to 100 participants depending on room availability. A typical seminar lasts from 2 to 3 hours and is conducted in one of the two official languages of the OECD, French or English. It may sometimes be possible for groups with fewer than 20 participants to attend a pre-booked seminar if the programme suits their interests.  

An OECD Seminar begins with an introduction to the OECD. Then, one or several members of the Secretariat brief the visitors on the particular topics of interest to them: economics, education, science, environment, governance, employment, technology, to mention only a few. A member of the relevant Delegation to the OECD is usually involved in the visit. Each presentation lasts about 45 minutes (including a question and answer period).

Around 5000 participants come each year, attending over 200 seminars. OECD Seminars are free of charge.

How to organise a visit/seminar?

 Due to limited availability of meeting rooms, it is important to send requests for OECD Seminars at least two months before the desired date of the visit.
Requests must include the following information: preferred date(s) and time of visit (morning or afternoon); number of participants; topics of interest; mention of previous visits; special requests.  A complete list of participants will be required approximately 3-4 weeks in advance.

•    Please note that student groups are accepted only from upper university levels, and that they must have a good knowledge of one of the OECD areas of activity.

•    Please note that we are unable to organise individual visits or tours.  

•    If you wish to meet on an individual basis with one of our experts, please contact the directorate directly.
