European Literacy Network

The European Literacy Network (ELN) is an international not-for-profit organization of individual literacy researchers and practitioners established by COST Actions IS1401 (ELN), IS1404 (E-READ), IS1406, IS14010 (DigiLitEY), and CA15221 (WeReLaTe).

The Association fosters networking among its members, promotes literacy research worldwide, and aims to bridge the gap between literacy science and education. Networking, advancement of literacy research, and better literacy education are not ends in of themselves, but means to strengthen individual researchers or practitioners’ capabilities, improve literacy education worldwide, promote human development, and spread humanistic values.

To achieve its goals the network carries out many activities, including: communities’ establishments, short-term exchange missions, training schools, workshops, and the Literacy Summit.
