The Lifelong Learning Platform is delighted to announce that it has joined the ASEM Education and Research Hub for Lifelong Learning (ASEM LLL Hub) in its Advisory Board. The ASEM LLL Hub was launched in Copenhagen in May 2005. It is a network that promotes dialogue between researchers, practitioners, and policy makers in order to create foundations for evidence-based educational reforms. The Hub is composed of Asian and European universities that are involved in lifelong learning research and supportive of inter-regional exchanges and co-operative efforts.
At the same time, LLLP joined the Expert Group on Inclusive and Flexible Lifelong Learning Pathways for the 8th ASEF Regional Conference on Higher Education (ARC8). The ASEF Regional Conference on Higher Education (ARC) – formerly called the ASEF Rectors’ Conference and Students’ Forum – is the Official Dialogue Partner of the ASEM Education Ministers Meeting (ASEMME) and the only bi-regional multi-stakeholder dialogue platform for university and student leaders, policy makers and ministers to discuss higher education issues and shape the education landscape in Asia and Europe. Past editions of ARC have brought together over 746 university, student and thought leaders representing 423 organisations from 51 Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) countries to discuss emerging higher education issues concerning both regions and to inform ASEM policy makers.
We look forward to the internationalisation of education and training and to exploring new partnerships!
