resource base (EHRD Base) has been developed in collaboration with a network
of experts in European HRD (EHRD Network).
basic concept of this collaboration has been derived from studies on knowledge
intensive networks which emphasise the interrelation between resource and
action: the resources can only function and unfold their impact if the
actors competently relate to them in their work, thereby continuously reproducing
the resources. The interaction between the EHRD Network and the EHRD Base
is oriented towards mutual benefit for all participants and unrestricted
EHRD Network includes experts from EU projects and their partnerships (see
from related organisations concerned with HRD in Europe (see associations)
and from the wider community of European researchers in HRD related areas.
A large part of the network members are included in the who's
who in European HRD.
The EHRD Network had 480 members from 34 countries (mostly
European) in 2006 - see table and figure.
Statistical evidence on the EHRD Network was also presented in two studies
about European research communities 
mailing list has been set up for facilitating communication between the
coordinator and the members of the EHRD Network. While this electronic
medium provides the basis for continuous exchange within the whole network,
various events (conferences, seminars, workshops) are used for intensive
