Solveig Grimault delivered a speech at the EPALE France thematic meeting “Learning and workpalce learning”
European policies and the national policies of Belgium, France and Luxembourg focus on access to training by persons who are less qualified and alienated from the work place. The teams of EPALE (Electronic Platform for Adult Learning in Europe) and EAAL (European Agenda for Adult Learning) from these three countries have therefore decided to organize jointly a conference to broach the issue of the role played by adult training in social inclusion. This event will provide a prime opportunity for the different stakeholders in this matter to meet.
Within NQF-in Project we can collect the experiences of seven European countries that are at different stages of NQF implementation: Croatia, Czech Republic, France, Hungary, Ireland, Poland and Scotland. The Project has started in 2015. and it is about to be finished, because the preliminary results and draft Report were presented on Final Conference in Warsaw a few days ago. As a Serbian expert for qualifications and policy making in the NQF process, I was privileged to take part in exchanging and peer-reflection sessions within the Conference.
It is clear that - for individuals and the economy alike - the challenges of industrial, demographic and climate change make the case for investing in adult learning more important than ever. It is also clear that times have never been tougher for adults wanting to take up learning. What green shoots of hope there are to be found lie mainly in local and regionally based innovation. Adult education is an area where devolution works.
Only some 10% of adults engage in any kind of learning, despite the fact that several global trends suggest that learning should not end after school. The European Commission hopes to see a significant increase in the numbers in the near future.

Regional cooperation in the higher education policy sector has been on the rise throughout the last decades. In this article, we compare and analyse two instances of higher education regionalisms (i.e. political projects of higher education region creation) in Europe and South-East Asia from an ideational perspective. In so doing, we engage with and challenge the diffusion argument common in both European higher education studies (‘Bologna Process export thesis’) and new comparative regionalism.
