EPALE - Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe

Comparative Research Network e.V.

CRN is actively involved in scientific research, teaching and cultural activities that link the realm of ideas with everyday experience. As our name indicates, we work internationally and cross-culturally. Only through thoughtful comparison can we interpret our local reality, render it more comprehensible and develop strategies to address the issues that affect our everyday lives. CRN performs research both as a partner within international consortia as within the scope of its own projects. CRN publishes a working paper series that communicates the work of its members to a wider audience.

We are experienced in running and coordinating adullt education projects since 2010. CRN started with Grundtvig in-Trainings on intercultural and digital competences. Since than a number of projects had been realised:
