Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe


European policies projects and funding

The high-level education conference “Contemporary Approaches to Learning and Teaching” starts today in Tallinn where nearly 200 European education experts discuss the alignment of education systems with the needs of our evolving society.

During the European Vocational Skills Week (20-24 November 2017) the European Commission will award outstanding research projects in vocational education and training (VET).

The VET Research Award aims to reward a VET research project or an individual researcher who has made an outstanding contribution to innovative thinking in VET, including initial and higher VET, continuing VET, and career-long professional learning.

The Advenus project aims to improve and extend the offer of high quality, culturally sensitive open access e-learning resources to adult refugees, and their trainers and teachers in EU countries.

We are able offer five open access courses, translated into five different languages. This is the result of an international research collaboration between INN University of Applied Sciences in Norway (coordinator), LUMSA University in Italy, University of PORTO in Portugal, and Community Development Institute in Macedonia.  Advenus is funded by the EU and Erasmus+.

On 22 and 23.5.2017, at the invitation of the national co-ordinating bodies for EPALE Deutschland, the European Agenda for Adult Learning and the ERASMUS+ programme for adult education, 70 participants gathered in the National Education Agency for Europe of the Federal Institute for Vocational Education and Training (NA beim BIBB) in Ludwigshafen to exchange views on questions concerning the value, effect and use of adult and continuing education.
