ComNet rationale

ComNet and the preceding project Euroweaving were conceived against the background that networks play an increasingly important role in European lifelong learning policies. In contrast to this growing importance it appears that the results of some of the funded networks are below expectations in terms of contribution to the educational field concerned. One of the reasons for this seems that many network co-ordinators and partners do not have a sufficiently clear picture of the concept of a network as a specific cooperation structure and of adequate activities and management processes.

Euroweaving produced

The latter was received very positively by participants. A clear wish was expressed that a longer and more intense training offer on the networking skills and on the specific knowledge, competences and tools needed for managing European networks would be desirable for the adult education community in Europe.
ComNet is an answer to this need.
