Lifelong learning  is a "personal" approach that aims to increase one's set of skills and knowledge. Its purpose is to modify or expand existing skills and knowledge, as they are no longer adequate with due respect to new social (self-fulfillment and inclusion) and professional needs (employment).

Lifelong learning is the preferred instrument specified by the European Union to achieve the goal of developing a knowledge-based society, sustainable economic development, new and better jobs and greater social cohesion, ensuring at the same time the protection of the environment (the Lisbon Strategy).

Promoting European Lifelong Learning instruments and the exchange of good practices in order to enhance the quality of Continuing Vocational Training is one of the primary objectives of the Association, which is very active on these issues through CRES - Centre for Research and European Studies.
