Established in 1991, eucen is the largest multidisciplinary association for University Lifelong Learning in Europe. We represent this educational level in Europe through our research, lobbying and activities.
The definition of University Lifelong Learning (ULLL) varies between countries and universities. eucen seeks to embrace this rich diversity and to have a coherent focus for its activities.
eucen understands University Lifelong Learning to encompass a flexible learner-centric approach which allows learner to learn at their own pace, in their own prefarred space, according to their own specific needs. Discover eucen‘s four main focus areas:
Using technology to enhance learning.
Continuously developing professional talent.
Connecting and working with the community
Developing a world where all are welcome
