Phase I - Period 2000-2010:  Research, Education and Training

  • At the Lisbon European Council in March 2000, Heads of State and Government set an ambitious target for Europe to become "the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world" by 2010. They also placed education firmly at the top of the political agenda, calling for education and training systems to be adapted to meet this challenge [Lisbon Strategy | The Lisbon Strategy was adopted in March 2000 and aims to make the EU the most dynamic and competitive economy by 2010].

The Conference will consider the perspectives and vision of the i2010 (i2010-European Information society in 2010) programme and how this will stimulate the promotion, development, and development of e-Learning content, products and services and the contribution of these to lifelong learning. i2010 is the European Commission's strategic policy framework laying out broad policy guidelines for the information society and the media up to 2010.
