In recent years, members of EDEN have regularly been involved in developing policy initiatives, contributing to numerous landmark publications, and have participated in a comprehensive range of Europe-wide activities and initiatives.
ODL Liaison Committee archive
Upon EDEN's initiative as early as 1996 and following consultations with the involvement of the European Commission and the Council of Europe, it was decided in June 1998 to establish the European Open and Distance Learning Liaison Committee. The Liaison Committee, with the involvement of the networks represented in the Committee, organised the Joint European Conference, entitled "ODL Networking for Quality Learning", in 2000 in Lisbon. Keynote contributions of the conference have been published in the book "New Learning".
Integration and co-operation
A meeting place for European co-operation On the basis of its comprehensive and inclusive approach and its outstanding reputation, EDEN functions as a participative, dynamic and evolutionary organisation. It combines a new energy with an open attitude and a non-hierarchical approach towards other institutions. Welcome is a keyword for EDEN. In the forefront there is the meeting place that serves the active community as an important and influential "hub".
Learnovation Stakeholders’ Roundtable
Following the initiative of nine major European networks, including EDEN, concerned with lifelong learning, e-learning and education, representatives from more than 40 key EU and national lifelong stakeholders gathered in the European Commission in March 2008, to discuss a new vision of innovation in learning and to share ideas on how to bring the Learnovation initiative forward.
