EURASHE 22nd Annual Conference
The EURASHE 22nd Annual Conference will be held on 10 & 11 May 2012 in Riga and will be titled "Responding to challenges for European higher education: Lifelong learning and the Welfare Society".

The conference will address two themes which will top the future agenda for European Professional Higher Education, namely lifelong learning and the welfare society



On this occasion the  FLLLEX project will be presented, in particular the instrument which has been developed in order to implement Lifelong Learning strategies in higher education institutions. This is a project initiated and supported by EURASHE, which aims at identifying challenges and implications of the incorporation of Lifelong Learning into European Higher Education institutions.


This interesting event will be followed by the 2012 EURASHE General Assembly (reserved for members) and a policy-crosscutting Working Group thematic session open to all experts in the fields, which will be held in the afternoon of 11 May at the same venue.  


Both events will be hosted by the BA School of Business and Finance in Riga and will took place at the Radison Blue Hotel Latvija.

Over the past 18 months, the West of Scotland Colleges' Partnership (WoSCoP) led a transnational team of experts in the field of adult education to undertake two studies aimed at analysing and exploiting the results of two Grundtvig Measures - (i) European Co-operation Projects, Networks and Accompanying Measures and (ii) In-Service Training activities.

The results of these extensive studies have just been published and, amongst other things, they highlight examples of interesting and sector-leading practice, provide information and advice on disseminating and exploiting project results, suggest improvements in the field of in-service training and provide details of relevant networks, publishing houses and conferences across the 31 eligible countries.
