Giving shape to the future European Lifelong Learning Institute

On 9th November 2011 EUCIS-LLL held the public presentation of its European Institute on Lifelong Learning (EILL) at the European Economic and Social Committee in Brussels.

More than 60 participants took place in this interesting debate around the role and added value of setting up such an Institute at the European but also at the national and regional/local level. Participants very much welcomed the EILL project and the scenario for its future development. They outlined the key role played by national correspondents to ensure the connections between various actors and levels. Representatives of civil society organisations, social partners and EU, national and regional institutions expressed their political support to the EILL. EUCIS-LLL is now finalising the EILL business plan and is actively looking for financial sponsors.
