- Lifelong Learning Programme
Lifelong Learning Programme
The Lifelong Learning Programme covers the period 2007-2013, and is the successor to the Socrates, Leonardo da Vinci and eLearning programmes. Its aim is to support projects and activities that foster interchange, cooperation and mobility between education and training systems within the EU.
The Lifelong Learning Programme is built on four pillars (Comenius, Erasmus, Leonardo da Vinci, Grundtvig). Grants and subsidies will be awarded to projects under each of these that enhance the trans-national mobility of individuals, promote bilateral and multilateral partnerships, or improve quality in education and training systems through multilateral projects encouraging innovation, for example. These four pillars are joined by a 'transversal programme' and the new Jean Monnet programme.
The general objective of the Lifelong Learning Programme is to contribute through lifelong learning to the development of the Community as an advanced knowledge-based society, with sustainable economic development, more and better jobs and greater social cohesion, while ensuring good protection of the environment for future generations. In particular, it aims to foster interchange, cooperation and mobility between education and training system within the Community so that they become a world quality reference.
