Education Committee

The mission of the Education Committee is to support ecoDa members by developing and organising high quality director training programmes with a cross-border perspective. The aim of these programmes is to encourage the Europeanisation of the boardroom and promote wider understanding of international corporate governance. ecoDa programmes seek to complement but not compete with director training programmes offered by national institutes of directors. The Education Committee also facilitates the development of a network of European directors with a specific interest in cross-border directorship and boardroom effectiveness
