As stated on the website ENIRDELMis a self-funding network promoting critical and friendly professionalism to improve the quality of educational leadership and management development and researchacross the whole of Europe. It seeks to deepen and share understanding of the perspectives of multiple stakeholders in education and ultimately to make an impact on learning at all levels of education systems. It does this through the initiative and energy of its participants through mutually generated collaborative activities, both face-to-face and electronic.The aims of the Network are to promote critical professionalism and friendship amongst educational leaders, to strengthen the links between theory and practice (in both directions) and promote critical analysis and deep understanding of complex and varied educational contexts and issues, to encourage mobility of EL professionals in order to share knowledge and experience and to disseminate and exchange EL information, documents, literature and materials.

The common theme of the conference linked to ENIRDELM mission and aims isformed as a question:What are the big questions about educational leadership? We will reflect upon the questionssuch as: How do school leaders cope with new social, economic and cultural contexts?Can schools keep up with computers? Does new findings on learning affect school leadership? How? Why? Why not?Those are only some starting points to provoke our thinking, to raise professional dilemmas and challenges, to encourage presentations of our current practice and to search for evidence of the best, or as recently some call it, next practice.
