ELLI - European lifelong learning indicators: making lifelong learning tangible!

Scientists at the JRC's Institute for the Protection and Security of the Citizen (IPSC) have carried out an independent audit of the European Lifelong Learning Indicators (ELLI) Index, a new aggregate measure for the country-level assessment of lifelong learning in the EU Member States.

The audit concludes that the ELLI-Index is built according to sound statistical methodology and has the potential to open up ideas and dialogues relating to lifelong and life-wide learning to a wider population within and outside Europe.

The ELLI project is an initiative led by the Bertelsmann Foundation and this index represents a first step towards making lifelong learning more tangible and measurable. The conceptual framework for the ELLI-Index is loosely based on UNESCO's International Commission on Education for the 21st Century and identifies four major dimensions of learning.
