Dear fellow ENIRDELMers,
We would like to draw your attention to our 27th Annual ENIRDELM conference that will take place in Ljubljana, Slovenia on the 19th -21st of September, 2019.
Our theme this year is ‘WHAT ARE THE BIG QUESTIONS ABOUT SCHOOL LEADERSHIP?’. The conference will enable participants from all areas of education to meet and share their work in a supportive environment.
We hope to showcase learning in the following sub-topics:
- 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?
Further information and application forms will be forwarded in February 2019.
Dear Enirdelm 2018 Participants,
A few weeks ago we had the opportunity to meet you in Antwerp for the Enirdelm conference!
Looking back at the photo’s (click on the link) your memory will be awakened. We were wondering
- what was the impact or influence of the conference theme ‘leadership in Emotion’ on you and your practice
- what is your ‘golden’ advice for the organizers next year?
It would be so nice if you want to give us your opinion (click on the link).
Thank you very much!

He is grateful to all the self-motivating ENIRDELMers from around the world who have contributed their time and warm friendships over these many years to the cause of improving educational leadership, research and development and building bridges across Europe. May the solidarity and success of the friendly professional network be long sustained!
The publication deadline for the November 2017 ENIRDELM newsletter is 15 November. This will be the final newsletter that I will be editing and I would appreciate contributions, not only those already promised, but from all who have items of interest to the almost 300 educators around Europe on our mailing list. Please check former newsletters on this website to see the type of contributions that we are seeking. Future newsletters will be edited by Karol Sadleir who succeeded me as Voluntary Permanent Secretary after the Krakow Conference in September.
It is with great sadness that we announce the death in September 2017 of the founder of ENIRDELM, Fons van Wieringen. While professor at the University of Amsterdam in 1991, Fons took the initiative at an ESHA educational congress in Utrecht, to form and lead the first ENIRDELM Board comprising Danuta Elsner (Poland), David Oldroyd (then UK), Christen Jordet (Norway) and Rosa Lafitte (Spain) with a view to establishing a network to bring together educational leadership professionals from across Europe. This was shortly after the fall of the Berlin Wall. It was Fons’ visonary way to build bridges between East and West Europe. An obituary will placed in the the forthcoming ENIRDELM newsletter to be published mid-November.
