FREREF, the Foundation of European Regions for Research in Education and Training, was created in 1991 as an initiative of several European Regions. The network currently gathers about thirty Regions and Regional bodies and organisms acting in the area of LLL. It is associated to several other European Networks such as EUCIS-LLL, EARLAll, The Committee of Regions, The European Association of Regions.
The objective of FREREF is to promote and support the real and concrete development of LLL at Regional and European levels, by enabling interregional cooperation based on practice sharing and peer learning, and by reinforcing the links between the regional actors and the European context, which is strongly and rapidly evolving regarding LLL (Lisbon strategy, Copenhagen process, etc.).
The collaboration between actors relies on a triptych: decision makers – field operators – researchers, which guarantees the soundness of work, the efficiency of processes, and the relevance and legitimacy of proposals.
