The theme and scope of EDENRW8 reflected the current challenges facing researchers and the intersection of their work with ‘doing better things’ for key stakeholders.
EDENRW8 was very focussed on you the researcher and what you can learn from and with your peers. It took place in an intimate setting where researchers including postgraduate students could share research, connect with peers and have adequate time to discuss the challenges of their work. EDENRW8 was suitable for researchers and postgraduate students and particularly those wishing to actively connect with peers and debate Challenges for research into Open & Distance Learning: Doing Things Better: Doing Better Things.

EuroPACE membership integrated to EDEN
With the ceasing organisational activities of EuroPACE, we welcome in the EDEN Community - based on the decision of the Boards of the two Associations - the EuroPACE institutions from January 2014, in order to continue their activities within EDEN.Details > >
There has been a long and good history of the partnership and co-operation of the two European networks since the early 90es. With different focus of activities, both organisations have played important role during the last decades in the development of the ICT supported learning.
