Rob Arntsen, managing director or web-based knowledge systems provider, MyKnowledgeMap (MKM), will present a case study at Online Educa Berlin’s pre-conference forum, on 29th November, focusing on ‘Lifelong Learning – Policy and Practice in the UK’.

“Lifelong Learning is promoted by the European Union as the core strategy to reach the goal of the 2000 Lisbon agenda,” Arntsen explained. “By 2010, Europe should become the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world, capable of sustainable economic growth, with more and better jobs and greater social cohesion.
