Welcome to EUROlocal
EUROlocal is the European storehouse on the local and regional dimensions of lifelong learning
During 2011 this site has published a wealth of online information. But we know that there is a great deal more out there. We therefore invite you to enter your own case study, charter, tool, project description, publication or whatever linked to the development of learning cities and regions.
EUROlocal reinforces the EC policy on lifelong learning regions by collecting the tools, strategies, learning materials, reports and everything concerned with their development.
The essence of the EUROlocal project is collaborative and interactive. The partners continue to make significant contributions to the development of the concept and practice of the learning region in their own right. EUROlocal represents an easily-accessible resource for local initiatives to the collective experience and knowledge resulting from these pan-European efforts.
As well as connecting the ongoing learning region activities of its principal stakeholders, EUROlocal constantly seeks input and feedback from new and prospective entrants through its Dynamic Survey of European Learning Regions. If you would like to receive an invitation to participate or simply stay informed
then please contact us.

The Smart-Regions Website is a showcase of over forty remarkable achievements in the domain of e-Services, e-Learning and e-Government that were realised in European regions in 2002-2007, called “Smart Regions”. It includes several documents about projects and initiatives for building social capital, regional innovation as in the field of education and research. Eleven of them are taking place in Belgium, eight refer to the Netherlands.
All the governments, research institutions or voluntary organisations depicted on this website have one shared goal: to make their region better, stronger and smarter. And the secret to regional development is actually very simple: co-operation. The Smart Regions share infrastructure, exchange methodologies, copy succesfull achievements, have built strong stakeholder structures and managed to involve other sectors of society.
