EDEN Executive Committee meeting took place in Rome, Italy 21-22 February 2019, hosted by University Roma III. Besides the usual items on the agenda as, minutes from the last meeting, financing, next conferences, Fellowships etc. we dedicated time to work on strategic discussions for EDEN future! Each EC member had been asked to provide SWOT analyses in advance, and then we had a "Tour the Table", and a common SWOT was finally created. We planned to continue our good actions and we agreed and was excited about new initiatives. One of the other important items on the agenda was on How to deal with Brexit. It has been a long process prior to this meeting, at our online meetings during the year, especially since autumn and a special working group together with EDEN Secretariat had prepared different scenarios, and a process forward. It is a really complex problem for a European Association as ours, as we are depending Operational Grants from the European Commission.
As always great discussions and an open professional and personal atmosphere. EDEN is like a family, just love it. Since June 2018 in Genova, I am on my second period in the EDEN Executive Committee. Besides being an EDEN Fellow (since 2014) and EDEN Council of Fellows (since 2018), I am Chairing the EDEN SIG on TEL and Quality Enhancement, follow us at LinkedIn.
