Institute for the Development of Education

The Institute for the Development of Education (IDE) is a non-governmental organisation that contributes to the development of higher education policy, provides expert support to institutions, connects domestic and international experts and enables individuals in Croatia and Southeast Europe to achieve their educational goals. IDE is based in Zagreb (Croatia) and since its launch in 1999, it has succeeded in consolidating its position as the leading Croatian think tank (NGO) in the field of higher education. In addition to working at the national level in Croatia, IDE works at the European level through its participation in Bologna Follow-up Group (BFUG), the BFUG Advisory Group on the Social Dimension of the Bologna Process (2018-2020; 2010-2012), the European Commission’s Network of Experts on Social Dimension of Education and Training (NESET) (2019-2021; 2013-2014), the European Commission’s European Expert Network on Economics of Education (EENEE) (2017-), the OECD’s Higher Education Forum (2017). IDE has also worked closely with Open Society Foundation’s Network Scholarship Programmes (1999-2012) and the US State Department, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) (EducationUSA Network) (1999-2019).
