Menon

ROLE in STREAM: partner - lead partner of WP 6

Created out of a successful Esprit project in 1999 as a non-for-profit EEIG (European Economic Interest Group) in Brussels, MENON has been working in the last 12 years to provide information, evaluation, consultancy and development support to policy makers, industry and society at large on issues related to learning, and how learning is linked to organizational and social developments in Europe and worldwide.

The mission of MENON is to facilitate the evolution of the Knowledge Society in Europe and in other parts of the world, making learning a priority issue in policy agendas around economic, social and cultural development at both national and international level.

The MENON Network is active both at national level, through its members, and at transnational level, where the EEIG coordinates co-funded projects, and is active in other collaboration and support work for the European Commission and international organisations.

In twelve years of activities, MENON has been successfully coordinating more than 20 research projects, being in charge of management, research coordination, dissemination, European and international networking, sustainability building. All these projects have produced tangible results and have had an impact on selected target users.

MENON has been the initiator of a number of successful sustainable initiatives transforming research and pilot projects into long-term oriented ventures. In the field of e-learning quality, MENON has contributed to the creation of EFQUEL, the European Foundation for Quality in e-learning (www.qualityfoundation.org), a stable and broad network active as a forum for research and exchange of practices and visions in the field of learning quality.
