National Networks / Collaboration

eucen has always recognised the importance of having close links with National and Regional Networks focused on LLL and CE.

The number of National and Regional Networks that are members of eucen has increased steadily. We not only have links to formal networks but also to informal groups that have a real interest in discussing the needs and current climate of LLL and CE in their country.

Over the last 4 years we have scheduled periodical meetings of the networks to discuss issues of common interest. And some new networks have been initiated at eucen European Conferences - for example, the Spanish at the Barcelona conference in spring 2001 and the Italian one at the Chieti conference in autumn 2001.
