Lifelong Learning Programme

The 2013 call for proposals “EAC/S07/12” for the Lifelong Learning Programme has been published.

The general objective of the Lifelong Learning Programme is to contribute through lifelong learning to the development of the Community as an advanced knowledge-based society, with sustainable economic development, more and better jobs and greater social cohesion, while ensuring good protection of the environment for future generations. In particular, it aims to foster interchange, cooperation and mobility between education and training systems within the Community so that they become a world quality reference.

The Lifelong Learning Programme has the following specific objectives:

- to contribute to the development of quality lifelong learning, and to promote high performance, innovation and European dimension in systems and practices in the field;

- to support the realisation of a European area for lifelong learning;

- to help improve the quality, attractiveness and accessibility of the opportunities for lifelong learning available within Member States;

- to reinforce the contribution of lifelong learning to social cohesion, active citizenship, intercultural dialogue, gender equality and personal fulfilment;

-  to help promote creativity, competitiveness, employability and the growth of an entrepreneurial spirit;

-  to promote language learning and linguistic diversity;

-  to support the development of innovative ICT-based content, services, pedagogies and practice for lifelong learning;

-  to reinforce the role of lifelong learning in creating a sense of European citizenship based on understanding and

    respect for human rights and democracy, and encouraging tolerance and respect for other peoples and cultures;

-  to promote cooperation in quality assurance in all sectors of education and training in Europe;

-  to encourage the best use of results, innovative products and processes and to exchange good practice in the fields covered by the Lifelong Learning Programme, in order to improve the quality of education and training.
