Download the prospectus 

The Groningen Declaration Network (GDN) was formally established in 2012 to develop best practices and globally accepted standards for the secure, citizen centred consultation of educational data – allowing globally mobile citizens to share their authentic educational data with whomever they want, whenever they want, wherever they want.

Each year, representatives from more than 80 signatories and participants gather at the GDN Annual Meeting to share, learn and lead discussion on developing business and technical platforms to improve the data from learning experiences and the credentials attained via formal and informal learning environments.


In 2019 the GDN Annual Meeting will take place between the 24-26 April hosted by the University UPAEP in Puebla, Mexico. Reflecting the GDN’s swift growth and successful engagement, this event will take place in Mexico for the first time, after events in Groningen (2012), Beijing (2013), Washington DC (2014), Malaga (2015), Cape Town (2016), Melbourne (2017) and Paris (2018). With over 150 participants in 2018, the Annual Meeting is a unique opportunity to engage with a vibrant network of senior executives from around the world.

As an important contributor to the data ecosystem that fosters and supports the portability of academic credentials, we invite you to join us for this exclusive opportunity and position your organisation where the critical conversations begin. Connect and confer with a passionate group of leaders dedicated to collaboratively delivering student data accessibility. 

Sponsorship of the 2019 GDN Annual Meeting is now open and will connect your organisation with others who are guiding the global movement to increase respect and recognition of the currency of learning. In a rapidly expanding market, this opportunity offers a chance to strategically align your organisation with the vanguard of cross-border human capital mobility development.
