Abstract

The ‘Forage for Later-life Learning: Building on European Experience Project’ is a multi-lateral network, funded by the European Union Grundtvig Programme for three years (January 2012 – December 2014). There are 16 network partners (including the Association for Education and Ageing, of which the authors of this paper are members) in 14 countries, with Leicester University as lead partner. At the time of writing there are only a few months of the Project’s funded life remaining.
The rationale of the ForAge Project is the construction of knowledge about later-life learning, in the form of a database, and the use of that database as a means of promoting discussion, understanding, recognition and change – change in both policy and practice in later-life learning. This paper outlines and examines how that that rationale has been realised.
