Consortium of Institutions for Development and Research in Education in Europe

The CIDREE network actively promotes the exchange of information and expertise among professional educators. Its members are the lead organisation in their countries for providing professional policy advice to Ministers on key aspects of education. NCCA is a longstanding member of this network. This adds significant value to our activities in terms of their increased knowledge, efficiency and effectiveness in undertaking educational research or development. Membership of this network enables NCCA to contribute to and take account of national and international trends, developments and issues in, for example:

  • conducting research in education
  • leading national and local curriculum reform
  • commissioning or developing materials for learning and teaching

We are hosting the CIDREE Conference 2017 in Dublin Castle, 9 November, 2017. The theme of the conference is Wellbeing. The CIDREE Yearbook 2017, a thematic publication showcasing articles from CIDREE member states, will be launched at the Conference.
