The project “Universities and lifelong learning”, run by the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning and Shanghai Open University, released two reports as final outcomes on 5 June 2023 during an international webinar. EUA was part of the project’s Advisory Board.

The project explores the role of universities and higher education institutions in lifelong learning through various components, including a literature review, international surveys, case studies, interviews and thematic studies. The publications provide valuable insights into lifelong learning within universities and serve as a resource for policy-makers and educators.

The publication International trends of lifelong learning in higher education draws on insights gathered from a survey conducted among 400 universities in over 90 countries. The second report provides insights into ‘Institutional practices of implementing lifelong learning in higher education’ with an analysis of lifelong learning structures and practices at universities in Argentina, Canada, the People’s Republic of China, Ireland, Lebanon and Uganda.
