Covid-19 European Dental Education’s Immediate Response.
Last month we sent a questionnaire to gain insight into our member’s immediate response to the COVID 19 Pandemic. With over a 100 responses the ADEE executive is most appreciative of your engagement in this questionnaire. You can read the Executive commentary on the findings of the questionnaire here, review the various charts and tables here and interact with a map of responding dental institutions here.
We have recently issued a second questionnaire to members exploring their expectations around the need for changes in the clinical teaching environment in response to COVOD-19 and will share the findings of this in due course. If your school has not received an invitation to partake in this second survey please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
While ADEE 2020 Strasbourg has been postponed to August 2021, we are delighted to announce that we are continuing to deliver a number of our key annual activities thanks to kind support of our corporate and academic partners. In the coming weeks look out for information on extended deadlines for the ADEE GSK Dentistry in Society Scholarship, The Oral B Inter professional Dental Educator awards, The ADEE Early Career and Mature Educator’s awards. Keep an eye to our news page for information on the call for applications, qualifying criteria and closing dates for submissions.
Deans and heads will already have received an information email concerning the proposals for this year’s Federation of Heads and Dental Deans meeting kindly supported by Colgate.

ADEE is proud to be the dissemination partner for a nine member partnership delivering the Erasmus Plus KA2 Strategic Partnership project entitled O-Health-Edu. This project is driven by three overarching strategic objectives:

- Enable a shared understanding and a common vision of Oral Health Professionals' Education priorities for the future among all European stakeholders and policymakers;
- Define priorities for a strategic vision as well as support changes for oral health professionals’ education in 2030.
These aims are delivered through 13 intellectual outputs. Read more here on the project website and follow progress on our social media channels https://twitter.com/ohealthedu, https://www.facebook.com/ohealthedu
ADEE 2020 General Assembly
In response to international travel and local governmental restrictions and guidelines on physical distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ADEE Executive has taken the decision to deliver the ADEE 2020 general assembly online. While this will be a very different approach, it is important that our business and compliance matters continue to be addressed.
In the coming weeks registered institutional members' primary and secondary contacts will receive an email from the ADEE office outlining the date, time and process that will enable your institution to participate. Please ensure that you add Denis and Judith’s emails to your safe list so as to ensure you can receive this important mailing. All meeting paper will be provided online approximately two weeks before the date of the meeting. Further information will issue shortly and online at the ADEE newsfeed.

Call for participation by sister organisations into COVID-19 related issues
In recent weeks we have received an increasing number of requests from members and sister associations to share their calls for participation into COVID-19 related surveys and research. Rather than bombard members with emails we have decided to host these on our webpages and share them via the e-news system, thereby allowing interested members to participate at their will. Where possible the closing date is clearly displayed within the text. Please note these surveys are NOT validated by ADEE and that ADEE is simply facilitating distribution.
