Potential Impact and Value

by Eve-Liis Roosmaa last modified 2005-10-10 19:12

Strategic potential impact of the project
Project is expected to contribute both to competitiveness and cohesion of the EU by (a) developing and carrying out a joint agenda for a better understanding of the tensions between the knowledge-based society, lifelong learning and social inclusion in the context of enlargement of the EU and globalisation, (b) identification of best practices and suggestion of ways for implementation in order to reach the objectives for lifelong learning.

Innovation related activities
The project aims to extend the present knowledge of the relation between lifelong learning, education system, social inclusion and the knowledge-based society by the multidisciplinary development of the conceptual framework; by the development of methodology of comparative research; by the development of a common strategy for analyses of standardised data of the Adult Education Survey and to contribute to social innovation in terms of context-sensitive usage of the best inclusive practices on lifelong learning.

Added value at the European level
The project aims at initiating co-ordinated, joint research activities with regard to adults learning in the formal education system. The project will contribute to standardisation of the databases, the transferability of single national good practices and experiences, and the comparability of scientific instruments and methods.

The centrality of European dimension will be ensured in all 5 subprojects:

1.    review of literature and policy documents: an official discourse and policy measures on lifelong learning at European level will be critically analysed; against this backdrop member-countries’ discourses and policies will be accessed;

2.    research on participation of adults in formal learning based on Eurostat Adult Education Survey: common strategy for analyses of standardised data of Adult Education Survey will be developed; European typology of basic patterns of participation in lifelong learning will be developed and causal factors of cross-country differences will be revealed;

3.    survey of adults studying in the formal education system: differences between European countries in the expectations and attitudes towards LLL, obstacles to access and support received will be outlined;

4.    research on SME and the participation of workers in formal and informal learning: measures, instruments and good practices to enhance participation in LLL for SME - that are transferable (under certain identified conditions) throughout the Europe - will be proposed for both national and international stakeholders;

5.    research on educational institutions: European typology of the ways educational institutions promote the access and support the participation of disadvantaged groups will be developed; best European practices will be identified and recommendations concerning European conditions into which these practices fit, will be made.
