Welcome to Europaclub, a trans-national European promoter working for enhancement of culture and educational patrimony through a sensible usage of technology.
Innovation, Technology and Education have been an on-going focus of many European organizations work since the 1980s. In the last 20 years much of this has been under the heading of LifeLongLearning Programs funded by the European Commission: Leonardo, Comenius, Socrates, Erasmus. Today and for the Horizon 2020 perspective, Erasmus+ will be the Longlife Learning unified Program.

OECD named this field of action as ‘New Millennium Learners’; this definition refers to the European population that can be actively involved in constructing a new super-citizenship. This is very important to build the new European Federation of People. It encompass mainly an evolutionary approach to the organization and to the activities of educational bodies, but it has also included the widening of student achievement surveys towards digital literacy; reviews of e-learning in higher education, surveys on Open Education Resources (OER); technology as a source of innovation; and analyses of the digital resources market and educational technology patents.
Reporting from an authoritative source, OECD, in a 2013 article on this subject:
“Contemporary learning environments should be: i) Innovating the ‘pedagogical core’; ii) Engaging the ‘Design/Redesign Leadership Circle’; iii) Widening connections and capacity through partnerships; and iv) Promoting 21st century effectiveness (based on the principles derived from the 2010 ILE learning research review). Our apporach then applies this framework to show how technology shapes learning environments in many different ways.”

EuropaClub is working and will continue to be at the frontier of this inter-european process for building a competitive edge: towards a true European Wide educational scenario.
