The Continental European Division (CED) is one of the branches of the International Association for Dental Research (IADR) and encompasses:
Albania, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Belgium, Bosnia Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, France, Germany, Greece, Georgie, Hungary, Italy, Yugoslavia, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, FYRO Macedonia, Malta, Moldova, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Serbia Montenegro, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey and Ukraine.
CED-IADR has the distinct advantage of a geographically more concise outline (research contact closer by, less traveling, easier interaction with colleagues due to the size of the annual congress, awards and stipends limited to CED-IADR members, similar or equal sources for funding).
Recently, the Pan European Region of the IADR (PER-IADR), of which the CED-IADR is a member, has been founded to allow the organisation of larger European meetings on a biennial basis.
The following five IADR Divisions constitute the PER-IADR:
- British Division (BSODR)
- Continental European Division (CED)
- Irish Division
- Israeli Division
- Scandinavian Division (NOF)
