NTU tell us that the "ESDN" was founded in October 2008 in an attempt to bring practitioners and academics, alongside policy makers in sports development closer together through a collaborative network of individuals and institutions. The ESDN is linked to the PE and Sports Development (PESD) research unit at Nottingham Trent University, England.
It has the following goals:
- to encourage collaboration and partnerships in sports development 'practice' in Europe and beyond;
- to share theoretical and conceptual developments in sports development;
- to set up and plan symposiums, seminars and events to share discourse, debate and to challenge the traditional boundaries of the field;
- to develop longer term, sustainable network of members in the field of sports development.

Editor's comments - [ Nottingham Trent University organised a Sports Development conference on September 3rd 2009, under the auspices of what they describe as the European Sports Development Network. The ESDN is part the PE and Sports Development (PESD) research unit at Nottingham Trent University, and whilst not yet a recognised sports development or academic organisation, it is an interesting idea and the conference did include some interesting material. ] Reference this?Cryer, J.
