In 2008 the UNESCO chair for PBL and Engineering Education organised the first International Research Symposium in PBL (IRSPBL) with aim to create a community of researchers within PBL and engineering education, promote collaboration between PBL research communities and initiate new research projects. The first IRSPBL was held at Aalborg University, Aalborg, Denmark.
After 2008 IRSPBL has been organised every two years in collaboration with international partners. IRSPBL is also supported by its internal and international committees.
