The European Development Network continues to pave the way of new collaborations and partnerships in Europe!

The Network held the second ‘’European Development Network Summit’’ in Brussels with the participation of more than 40 institutions from 16 different countries from all over the EU and its neighbouring countries. The Summit brought together NGOs, private sector, public bodies and universities that are actively working in the thematic areas of the Network to create more opportunities.

European Development Network provided a unique experience of networking for its members by bringing together so many different organizations from different countries and fields of work. The Summit provided a great opportunity for networking to all the participating organizations to expand their domain to the interdisciplinary level.

The Summit was held between 25 November – 2 December. During the Summit, the institutions found the chance to take part in various workshops. They found the chance to receive information about EU projects, participated in thematic EU funding workshops, transferred best practices and innovation and created new projects to apply for 2020!

European Development Network has also made a study visit to the European Parliament on 28th November where it brought together its members with the EU representatives to talk about the European Union’s work in the thematic fields that EDN works.

European Development Network keeps being a pioneer network for all of its members in its thematic fields of work!
