This European conference presents a transnational pooling of expertise in order to make a comparative analysis of critical factors, identify common challenges and elaborate policy recommendations to improve and promote lifelong learning at all levels.

Around 250 national experts from across Europe, as well as high-level EU decision-makers and key stakeholders, will gather in Mechelen in order to exchange best practices, experiences and views. The main goal is to create a (real and virtual) space for Lifelong Learning by providing concrete outcomes such as policy recommendations towards the convergence of Lifelong Learning policies and their implementation at the European, national and regional level.
