Knowledge partners

EDI firmly believes in the power of networks, for the simple reason that a network is made up of more minds and is therefore a source of greater collective knowledge. Furthermore, a knowledge network develops and disseminates new knowledge more quickly and efficiently. This is why EDI maintains a formalised network of knowledge partners. These partners either contribute to the development of EDI's training programmes, or invite their experts to lecture on the programmes.
