EUCEN are happy to announce the call for papers for the next issue of the European Journal of University Lifelong Learning (EJULL). This special issue of the EJULL will expand on the themes raised during eucen’s Open Fora events, as outlined below. Their journal’s diverse readership includes researchers, practitioners and policymakers and we invite submissions that seek to engage specifically with one or more of those groups of readers. 

The themes addressed in the current issue are:  

- Professionalisation in Adult and Lifelong Learning 
- Transitions towards new learning strategies 
- Designing flexible learning for adults 
- Diversity and inclusion in Higher Education
