Twice a year, in spring and autumn, representatives of all member companies are invited to gather for the EIC General Assemblies which are followed by a Workshop. These Workshops are either topic-related and highlight particular framework conditions important for all European international contractors, such as export credit insurance, guarantees or influence of IT on construction, or they examine the present situation in the construction market of a specific region. At these occasions, expertise is brought into the discussion from outside the industry by engaging high-level speakers from various institutions to contribute to the discussion.
