eLene4Life brings together a group of five European universities, two higher education associations and a Foundation specialised in university-corporate cooperation. 

Collectively, the partnership is known as eLene, the ‘eLearning network’. Defined as “a vibrant group of people and institutions who form a network and community of practice around e-learning related projects”, eLene was born in 2003 out of the case-study institutions for the 2002 European Commission study “e-learning in European Higher Education”.  Since then, eLene has successfully completed 5 European projects, the results of which are still relevant today:  eLene-TT on teacher training; eLene-EE on economics of eLearning; eLene-TLC with its competency framework for teachers, students, educational technologists and decision makers; eLene2learn, on learning to learn competencies in lifelong learning transitions; eLene4work, on learning to learn new digital soft skills for employability. For more information, see eLene Network homepage
