IMPORTANT – EDEN Membership after Brexit

An item from our European colleagues.

Dear EDEN Members, Partners and Friends,

EDEN Digital Learning Europe – EDEN after Brexit

Thanks to the support of the professional community, we are celebrating the 30th Anniversary in 2021. EDEN has been the largest and most comprehensive association in the field of distance education and digital learning in Europe, a platform and magnet for academic and professional expertise and good practice.

EDEN’s activities and services have permanently been developing.

After Brexit, the continuation of EDEN’s Europe-wide mission became a problem, being a UK based legal entity.

Maintaining the high value European network of members and partners, the community of experts and practitioners needed in 2021 special efforts.

In the interest of sustaining EDEN’s legacy and ensuring the continuation of activities, the Executive Committee decided that EDEN should re-locate and continue its activities in an EU country.

An Association was created in Tallinn, Estonia under the name of EDEN Digital Learning Europe in April 2019. The legal frames and procedures have been endorsed by the EDEN Annual General Meetings of members in 2019 and again in 2020.

Estonia is one of the most digitized countries in Europe, with a supportive environment for innovation, creative industries and non-profit organisations, offering excellent online infrastructure and digital background in the public services.

Partnership and transition: EDEN UK – EDEN Digital Learning Europe

To manage the transition, a ‘Cooperation Agreement and Memorandum of Understanding about Transfer of Activities’ has been elaborated and signed by the Presidents of both organisations. According to the Agreement, EDEN Europe will with identical mission continue the activities and functions that EDEN UK does. EDEN UK will share and provide know how, web page, community resources to EDEN Europe.

It is foreseen that EDEN UK will remain operational and functioning, at least for the period of duration of present commitments and projects. In the post-Brexit transitional year 2021, joint and shared activities with EDEN UK started.

EDEN is grateful for the three decades of exceptionally successful work done as UK based international organisation and the support of authorities and academic-professional community in the United Kingdom. We aim to maintain and develop the partnerships between the UK organisations and the new EDEN Europe.

Membership Arrangements

The uninterrupted operation, continuation of EDEN’s well established activities, serving and developing the European learning innovation community implies and requires that EDEN UK members join the new organisation.

After our first recruiting campaign, EDEN Digital Learning Europe has already built a community of 200+ members.

We invite you to confirm your affiliation to the community by following the smooth process of joining EDEN Digital Learning Europe
Joining with valid EDEN UK membership will not foster any further membership fee charge in 2021.

EDEN is delighted to recall that the new EU Digital Education Action Plan started from 2021, with long term strategic approach and policy support. This is also as recognition of the IT supported learning innovation and the community of academics, professionals and practitioners.
EDEN intends to develop and extend activities in this emerging framework.
