CED-IADR has the great advantage of being a geographically closely area, thus allowing its members to benefit from the following:
- less traveling to the annual CED/PER-IADR congress which is held in Europe
- improved cooperation across country borders and disciplines (e.g. due to similar/equal funding opportunities, poster presentation platform for clinical cases)
- efficient interaction opportunities at the annual CED/PER-IADR congress
- different awards & grants reserved for CED-IADR members
- free CED-IADR Summer School reserved for CED-IADR members
- Young CED-IADR project to involve young researchers (e.g. symposium organised by Young CED-IADR)
CED-IADR is a founding member of the PAN EUROPEAN REGION of IADR (PER-IADR), which was formed to facilitate the organisation of larger European congresses on a biennial basis.
The following five IADR Divisions constitute the PER-IADR:
- British Division (BSODR)
- Continental European Division (CED)
- Irish Division
