Live Stream

Welcome to the live stream of OSE-17 held in Hildesheim, Germany!

As the organizing committee of the 4th Conference of Occupational Science Europe, we are very happy to inform you that there will be a free live stream of some sessions of the OSE-17! Even though you might not be able to participate as one of the 200 on-site participants from 24 countries, you are warmly invited to participate virtually via a free live stream! It is the first time that a live stream from an OSE-Conference is organized, and we hope to expand discussions about occupation across geographical and disciplinary borders also between those who cannot be with us in Hildesheim.

4 out of 30 sessions will be streamed live on Friday and Saturday September 8th and 9th 2017 as well as the Igniter Talk of the 2nd Think Tank on Occupation-Based Social Transformation on Thursday, September 7th.

You are warmly invited to leave comments or give feedback on social media or via e-mail during or after the streaming:

  • How would you rate the overall performance of the streaming?
  • Were you able to follow the presentation?
  • Would you use streaming again in the future?

Please send your answers and/or comments by eMail to
