Lifelong Learning Programme
The Lifelong Learning Programme for Community Action in the Field of Lifelong Learning has been established by the Decision 1720/2006/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 November 2006 . The general objective of the LLP is to contribute through lifelong learning to the development of the Community as an advanced knowledge society, with sustainable economic development, more and better jobs and greater social cohesion, while ensuring good protection of the environment for future generations. In particular, it aims to foster interchange, co-operation and mobility between education and training systems within the Community so that they become a world quality reference.
The Lifelong Learning Programme is established to address the modernisation and adaptation of Member State education and training systems, particularly in the context of the strategic Lisbon goals, and brings European added value directly to individual citizens participating in its mobility and other co-operation actions.
The LLP supports and supplements action taken by Member States, while fully respecting their responsability for the content of education and training systems and their cultural and linguistic diversity.
The Lifelong Learning Programme will run for 7 years (2007-2013). The total budget for this period is of 6.970 million euros.
