The Institute for Prospective Technological Studies (IPTS) has published a series of reports on eLearning in the ten Member States that joined the European Union in 2004. The reports describe each country's educational system and the role played by eLearning in it. The research takes into account the major technical, economic, political, ethical and socio-cultural factors of eLearning developments, and the major drivers and barriers for them in each country.

INFORMATION LITERACY: EXPERTS PANEL ROUND TABLE (Fifth EDEN Research Workshop) 21 October 2008, Paris
Information Literacy, alternatively termed as Media Literacy or Digital Literacy, proves to be strongly correlated to the Learning capacity, what may also be named as the Learning-to-Learn Competence. To be able to re-define these literacies in a lifelong learning perspective, we need to face the increasing policy interdependence between Education and Social Inclusion. The session is co-ordinated by Dr. Nikitas Kastis.
