The recent years

With the entry of the Universidad Permanente in Alicante (Spain) EFOS has also expanded to Southern Europe.

At this moment (2018) EFOS has 18 institutional and 16 individual members.

The Erasmus+ project "Educational Senior Network" (EduSenNet), carried out from 2014 till 2017, identified both the specific needs of elderly learners aged over 50 and the conditions under which they learn. The project examined the extent of possible innovation, how it may be undertaken and for whom. Identification of the learning environment can assist us in programme innovation not only in urban situations but also in specific communities and rural areas. The results are summarised in the publications "Educational Senior Network" und "Education for Seniors in Europe".
