Over 10 years of partnering for learning innovation in Europe

"If Europe is to be a dominant economic and social force on the global stage it must act as a cohesive unit wherever possible. eLearning is an opportunity for Europe to utilise the power of technology for real social and educational change, bringing benefits to academia and to business. We aim to put in place realistic goals and have called upon the expertise of the world's best eLearning companies to ensure these are set. It is mainly through successful Public Private Partnerships such as this that the true vision and power of eLearning will be realised in Europe."

Mrs Viviane Reding, Vice President of the European Commission at the Launch Event of ELIG, 2002

Where we are today?

ELIG was founded in Dublin in partnership with Commissioner Reding as the eLearning Industry Group

The group is strengthened with members from the wider learning ecosystem e.g. the publishing and content industry. This diversity leads to a new name: European Learning Industry Group.

ELIG starts entering into partnerships - the first with ICWE - organizers of Online Educa Berlin and eLearning Africa.

ELIG appoints the first ELIG fellows with backgrounds from organizations like the United Nations University, the Club of Rome and Ashoka.

ELIG extends its strategy towards working with an even wider community of learning innovators (including start-ups, research centers, innovative education institutions, NGOs, the European Committee of the Regions, OECD and UNESCO).

ELIG creates concrete initiatives targeted at Europe's pressing educational and learning challenges. A new logo and communication design is launched.

ELIG launches the ELIG Foundation gGmbH as the non-for-profit entity to carry out ELIG initiatives and actions like the Classrooms of the Future, the Innovation Camps and the ELIG Conference Series.
