The VISIR project started at the end of 2011, on the initiative of 8 European Networks, with the aim of developing a shared vision on how ICT may help making lifelong learning a reality for all based on real-life scenarios and insights.
The use of ICT for learning in Europe is gaining ground, but to uncap its potential as a driver of change for our economies and societies, we need to move from fragmentation and piloting to articulation and system adoption.
To address this need, seven European networks and two research institutions, with the support of the Lifelong Learning Program of the European Commission, have joined forces and will work for the next three years to address three major gaps: the “understanding gap”, the “networking gap”, and the “mainstreaming gap” of ICT for learning in Europe.
The VISIR Partnership
VISIR represents a rather unprecedented networking effort, bringing together seven European networks in the field of learning innovation plus two relaunched research institutions:
- the MENON Network
- the European Distance and E-learning Network (EDEN)

- the European Foundation for Management Development (EFMD)
- the European Learning Industry Group (ELIG)
- the European Interest Group on Creativity and Innovation (EICI)
- The European Foundation for Quality in e-Learning (EFQUEL)
