EADI - European Association of Development Research and Training Institutes
EADI is the leading Europe-wide network of institutes, researchers and students of various disciplines in the field of development studies. It organises activities and offers facilities for the international exchange of knowledge and experience in the professional field. Its most prominent activity is a General Conference devoted to a topical issue every three years.

The association was founded in 1975 and is an independent and non-profit-making international non-governmental organisation. Its Secretariat is based in Bonn, Germany. The EADI Executive Committee is drawn from across Europe. It is financed by its members’ contributions, an institutional grant from the German government and other projectrelated subsidies and private donations. EADI has associate, institutional, individual and student members in 28 countries. Its working groups address key issues in development research, training and information.
The University of Pavia is member of EADI from 1999 and from 2002 is member of the Executive Committee.
