Most people associate learning with formal education at school, college, university etc. However, formal education is only one type of learning. There are many other opportunities for people to further their knowledge and develop the skills they need throughout life. Lifelong learning is about the creation of formal, non-formal and informal learning opportunities for people of all ages. It allows them to unlock the knowledge of universities and insure their personal and professional development for continuing education. This helps complete the knowledge that they acquire during their careers and renew or develop new competencies. The Special Session on lifelong learning aims to bring researchers and practitioners working on lifelong learning approaches, problems, challenges and perspectives.
