Event Details

Synopsis of Event

This conference will focus on the outcomes of the European Horizon 2020 project ENLIVEN: Encouraging Lifelong Learning for an Inclusive and Vibrant Europe. During the past three years, researchers from across Europe and Australia investigated policy debates, funding mechanisms and lived experiences of participants in the field of lifelong learning, especially for young adults. During the day, the research team will interact with the audience and an expert panel on the significance of the project results. An Intelligent Decision Support System, constructed by the consortium to help policy makers and practitioners to make choices on the design and implementation of education and training interventions for young adults in need of support will be launched and discussed. The ultimate aim of the day will be to enable policy-makers at European Union, national, regional and organizational levels to enhance the provision and take-up of learning opportunities for (young) adults, leading to a more productive and innovative workforce, and reduced social exclusion. These discussions will be backed up by evidence gathered in the project, underpinned by theoretical debates in the broader field of lifelong learning.

HORIZON 2020 ─ ENLIVEN

ENLIVEN is a new Horizon 2020 project funded by the European Commission Horizon 2020 Young-Society Call Young-3.

The ENLIVEN research models how policy interventions in adult education markets can become more effective. Integrating state-of-the-art methodologies and theorisations (for example, Case-Based Reasoning methodology in artificial intelligence, bounded agency in adult learning), it implements and evaluates an innovative Intelligent Decision Support System to provide a new and more scientific underpinning for policy debate and decision-making on adult learning, especially for young adults. It utilises findings from research conducted by European and international agencies and research projects, as well as from the ENLIVEN project. It will enable policy-makers at European Union, national and organizational levels to enhance the provision and take-up of learning opportunities for adults, leading to a more productive and innovative workforce, and reduced social exclusion.

The project comprises 11 work packages (WPs) in 4 clusters.

  • WPs1-3 examine programmes, governance and policies in EU adult learning, looking at the multi-dimensional nature of social exclusion and disadvantage.
  • WP4 examines system characteristics to explain country/region-level variation in lifelong learning participation rates, with particular reference to disadvantaged and at-risk groups, and to young people.
  • WPs 5-7 examine the operation and effectiveness of young adults’ learning at and for work, undertaking cross-country comparative institutional analysis.
  • WPs 8 -9 develop the knowledge base for, and develop and trials, an Intelligent Data Support System (IDSS) for evidence-based policy-making and debate.
