Learning Networks are discussion groups for organisations involved in projects funded either through the Erasmus+ programme or through its predecessor programmes – the Lifelong Learning Programme (including Erasmus, Comenius, Leonardo, Grundtvig and Transversal programmes) and Youth in Action.
Learning Networks are intended to provide beneficiaries with a forum to meet, network and discuss topics of interest. These discussion groups will be one of the regular ways that those involved in European projects will be able to get together in person to talk about issues that interest them, to exchange project information and to build relationships with their peers.
There are two Learning Networks events a year. They are open to all funded projects and are a great way to meet other projects, make useful contacts and engage in discussions relevant to your aims and objectives. Find out more about our Learning Networks events.

What topics are covered?
Following consultations with the UK National Authority (Department for Education), stakeholder representatives and Learning Networks members, we set up three Learning Networks on topics addressed by the Erasmus+ programme.
These topics were chosen for their relevance to all target groups involved in the programme, and are intended to be relevant across the fields of higher education, vocational education and training, schools, adult education, youth and sport. The chosen topics are:
Learning Networks aim to get projects talking to each other on these topics, sharing the work their organisations are doing in each area and examining how activity in the UK supports not only the programme aims but also UK policy at regional and national levels.
