In line with the tradition, the 2009 European Awards for Lifelong Learning were granted in the fringes of the 2009 Annual Conference for the Lifelong Learning Programme, organised this year in Prague, under the auspices of the European Council’s Czech Presidency. The winners – 18 projects and student mobility activities that received funding under different EU education and training programmes – come from 12 different member states and were selected from a host of multi-partner cooperation projects and activities.
The European Awards for Lifelong Learning date from 2007 and were established to praise the role played by the winning projects in modernising the education and training systems across Europe.
This year’s winners were awarded gold, silver and bronze 'medals' for their innovative activities in one of six categories, i.e. school education (Comenius), higher education (Erasmus), vocational education and training (Leonardo da Vinci), adult learning (Grundtvig), language learning, and information and communication technologies. The 2009 higher education golden award went to the CLIOHnet project - an innovative network encompassing over eighty European universities and other partners across Europe, and stimulating critical awareness of history.
