CNC Meeting 2013
CIDREE National Coordinators Meeting
21 – 22 March 2013, Budapest
The Hungarian Institute of Educational Research and Development (OFI) hosted the meeting of the CIDREE National Coordinators (CNC) of the Consortium of Institutions for Development and Research in Education in Europe (CIDREE) on 21 -22 March 2013 in Budapest. CIDREE member institutions keep abreast of the processes in international education policy through collaborative projects, research exchanges, joint seminars, study visits and other cooperation with the CIDREE member institutions.
During the meeting in Budapest the National Coordinators discussed how to promote CIDREE at the European level and how to attract the institutions of other countries. Several countries offered to organize the coordinators’ meetings and general assemblies in the coming years and the Board will make a decision in this matter. A suitable title will be found to name the yearly CIDREE publication – yearbook – consisting of the articles of the member institutions about one common topic. The publication should reflect the views of the member institutions but the standpoint of other authors and countries may also be present.
The National Coordinators reported about the ongoing collaborative projects and discussed topics of next year’s projects. Ongoing projects should be maintained and new projects may be supported for dynamism and speed-up. Projects can start as a small experts’ meeting in certain fields, then develop the project idea together. Proposals should attract as many member institutions as possible, a minimum of three is required.
It was agreed that the advantages of our international cooperation need to be fully exploited in the partner institutions and actively disseminated within the consortium and beyond, outreaching to potential members.
