Three decades of serving modernisation in education in Europe
EDEN 30th Anniversary 2021
Message from our President
EDEN’s motto is “smart network for the professional community and professional community for smart learning” – and I believe we have justified it! For 30 years, EDEN has had a strong presence in the international education area by providing space for collaboration and networking for academic professionals and everybody interested in education. EDEN was always a place where you feel you belong somewhere, where you can share, discuss and interact with peers, learn new things, address interesting and important topics and get ideas in a friendly and creative atmosphere. I am happy that now, in these challenging times, EDEN and its members have promptly offered expertize and support in shaping education for the future we all wish for.
Message from our Secretary General

Most surely, the best of EDEN is yet to come”.
