The Nordic-Baltic Network in Higher Education Development is an informal network of educational developers and academics of the Nordic and Baltic countries. The aim of the network is to share best practices, research findings and to support members in their work. The network is a member of ICED.
The network organises once a year a meeting in one of the representative countries. Furthermore, the members of the network organised a meeting within the ICED conference.
In the year 2008, during the ICED conference in Salt Lake City, the participants from the Nordic and Baltic countries organised the first meeting in which they discussed the importance of sharing experiences in higher education development among the members of the Nordic and Baltic countries. The second unofficial meeting, as a common lunch for participants from the Nordic and Baltic countries, was organised in the ICED conference in Barcelona, 2010.
