EADI : Invitation and Update: Network to Networks Meeting on Tuesday 24 May 2022, 15:00 – 17:00 CET, online

EADI and UniPID (Finnish University Partnership for International Development) would like to invite interested academic networks or associations to a Networks-to-Network Meeting on

Tuesday 24 May 2022, 15:00 – 17:00 CET, online

This meeting will gather all interested network representatives to get to know each other and map common interests for cooperation.

We believe in the potential for collaboration between similar-minded networks and associations with common goals and comparable activities. There is significant space for mutual learning and development through sharing best practices related to network strategies and coordination, operations models and methods, as well as specific functions and activities.

We have foreseen the following agenda:

  • Introductions  
  • Presentation of the newly founded Swedish Development Research Network (by Janet Vähämäki)  
  • Brief introduction to UniPID’s activities on responsible global academic partnerships (by Johanna Kivimäki)  
  • Mapping of common interests for joint activities and related funding opportunities  

The meeting is a follow-up of a first meeting held at the EADI General Conference in 2017 in Bergen, with the intention to form a “network of networks” and the following online meeting in September 2017. The aim is to support the exchange and cooperation between European academic networks and associations relevant to development issues and global challenges. We would like to reinvigorate this intention and will offer this space to meet at regular intervals.

Any common interests could lead to joint activities, which could open the way to even wider contact networks for the academic communities that we serve.
