One important role for FACE is to facilitate the exchange and dissemination of information and practices in Lifelong Learning and Continuing Education. By promoting collaboration and innovation between providers and practitioners FACE aims to support and encourage a socially inclusive framework for Lifelong Learning, challenging exclusion and fostering full participation. As a large multi-sector network we play a key role as a pressure group, service provider, staff development forum, national policy shaper, information service, event organiser.
A Brief History of FACE
FACE, originally entitled the Forum for the Advancement for Continuing Education, was formally established as an educational charity in 1993. Prompted by the abolition of the binary divide in HE, the development of FACE was part of a raft of significant changes in HE. Where there had been universities and polytechnics (and an earlier incarnation of FACE in the Polytechnic Association for Continuing Education) now polytechnics became independent of local authorities and were granted university charters with powers to award degrees and to undertake higher level research. At the same time there was growing recognition that continuing education, in all its manifestations, was central to economic growth and social inclusion. More...

Project 539519-LLP-1-2013-1-BE-ERASMUS-ESIN. COMMIT intends to increase commitment to the social dimension of higher education and support strategies for increasing attainment. The project builds on the work of a previous project – ALLUME – which developed 3 self evaluation tools for universities to review their strategy for implementation of a comprehensive and coherent LLL university. This COMMIT project will review those 3 tools, refining and adapting them and adding new features which take on board a wider and clearer idea of the social dimension of HE; it will also design and develop a new tool for monitoring attainment in HE and integrate these tools in HEIs management systems.
Leonardo da Vinci, Transfer of Innovation. Submission ID 542692. This project coordinated by the University of Helsinki -Ruralia Institute- will focus on transferring and further developing organisational innovations in the VET sector. The existing good practices for SME-VET-HE/R knowledge chain together with selected models will be piloted in the nature-based entrepreneurship (NBE) sector in 5 countries and based on the pilots long term co-operation plans made. In each country the aim is to form "a trinity" VET-SMEs-HE/R to carry out the piloting.
Project 543097-LLP-1-2013-1-PT-KA3-KA3MP. This project coordinated by the University of Porto intends to provide a practical tool to suggest an adequate e-assessment strategy. EUCEN's role will be connected to the Exploitation of the project and also to Dissemination.
Project 543137-LLP-1-2013-1-AT-KA4-KA4MP. This project coordinated by dieBerater seeks to establish a platform for the partners from projects to share, develop and disseminate existing project support products. EUCEN's role would be mainly linked to the Dissemination package in this project.
Project 544047-TEMPUS-1-2013-1-GE-TEMPUS-JPGR. The main aim of this project coordinated by the David Tvildiani Medical University (Georgia) is to successfully transfer existing knowledge funded by the EU for project developers in the Caucasus Region and sharing experience of EU-universities in project development. EUCEN will co-lead the Dissemination package of this project.
Project 544405-TEMPUS-1-2013-1-AT-TEMPUS-SMHES. This project coordinated by the University of Krems intends to build capacity in VNIL in Russian HEIs in line with the EU2020 strategy. EUCEN will co-lead the Dissemination package, including the co-organisation of the final conference of this project. More...

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY UNIVERSITY LIFELONG LEARNING (ULLL)?
The definition of ULLL varies between countries and universities. EUCEN seeks to include this rich diversity and to have a coherent focus for our activities.
We have therefore adopted the following definition of University Lifelong Learning (ULLL):
"ULLL is the provision by higher education institutions of learning opportunities, services and research for: the personal and professional development of a wide range of individuals - lifelong and lifewide; and the social, cultural and economic development of communities and the region. It is at university level and research-based; it focuses primarily on the needs of the learners; and it is often developed and/or provided in collaboration with stakeholders and external actors".
WHAT ROLE DOES EUCEN HAVE?
EUCEN has an important role in the policy making process. It is represented on a number of committees and advisory panels at European level and provides experts and expert teams for international projects and consultancy to universities wishing to develop lifelong learning strategies and actions. Through conferences, projects and networking activities we provide a wide range of opportunities for staff and curriculum development, for the sharing of best practice and for the development of international contacts for ULLL.

Wed, 11/06/2014 to Fri, 13/06/2014, Warsaw,Poland, LLL Universities & the European Policies on Social Investment.
Given the magnitude of challenges faced by Europe today, including population ageing as well as economic crisis, but also increasing pace of changes due to globalisation and technological development, it is important to seek for human capital development that would enable Europe to face these challenges. The European Commission recently announced its Social Investment Package, which guides the policy responses for human development. Lifelong learning universities should take the conference as an opportunity to discuss and define their understanding of the "social investment".

Par Patrick Arnoux. Et le politique n’arrange pas les choses.
Grandes écoles/universités sont un peu les frères ennemis de l’enseignement supérieur à la française, structuré par cette dualité unique au monde. Elle nous a couté si cher quand les Chinois se sont livrés à des benchmarks planétaires que des dispositions ont été prises pour relever ce défi révélé d’une si humiliante façon. Mais les regroupements décidés fin juillet – les Comue – se passent mal. Cela aurait pu être une formidable occasion d’entente entre des acteurs majeurs afin de parvenir à une forte visibilité.
L’hégémonie et l’entre soi universitaire en a décidé autrement. Il est vrai qu’entre les grandes écoles et les universités, l’antagonisme – singulièrement dopé par le politique – se décline en de solides pommes de discorde, recherche, diplômes de masters et mastères, stages , classes prépas etc. Guerre larvée sur de multiples fronts alors que les contraintes extérieures devraient les obliger à s’entendre, à proposer des cursus communs, et des marques à forte visibilité.
