EABS is open to all scholars and students of the Bible. It organizes research groups, supports a graduate network and holds an annual conference, usually in the second half of July or in early August, at different locations in Europe.
A particular aim of the association is to encourage the flow of scholarship between European countries and especially to make it easier for scholars and students in Central and Eastern Europe to participate with their colleagues in Western Europe and beyond in the exchange of knowledge and ideas.
Members will receive a regular newsletter and are invited to share information about conferences, academic positions and general news about biblical scholarship.
For both academic and ethical reasons, the EABS is committed to an environment of equal opportunities for all its members, so that all can contribute together to developing academic excellence that is transparent across our differences. The EABS will not tolerate discrimination on the basis of gender, sexual orientation, religion or lack thereof, creed, nationality, national origin, color, race, ethnicity, age, disability, employment status, marital status, or any other unethical grounds for discrimination. The EABS and EABS members are committed to providing an environment that is free of any form of harassment and in which academic discussions are conducted with the utmost personal respect and professionalism.
