On 10 December 2012, the UNESCO Institute for Lifelong Learning and the University of Hamburg invited ten young professors working in adult education and lifelong learning in Germany to come to Hamburg for a networking meeting. The objective was to bring together professors with an interest in adding an international dimension to their research by working together with UIL and to co-host a network with the University of Hamburg in the future.

This first networking meeting was met with great interest by the participants. The discussion on the latest developments in research on adult education and lifelong learning in Germany and on UIL’s work in this field concluded with the decision to develop a joint future work plan. A follow-up meeting will be held in the context of the European Society for Research on the Education of Adults Triennial Conference 2013 (ESREA) in Berlin from 4 to 7 September 2013.
