Chair of ASEM LLL Hub
'Hardly ever before has the demand for educational solutions been so big. At the beginning of the 21st century there is a global demand for research-based recommendations for lifelong learning strategies. The expectations are high, if not enormous. The strategies are expected to contribute to a win-win-situation, i.e. they should solve both humanistic and economic problems for all and at the same time. This is a challenge, which we have to work together to solve'.
