The EU is the world’s largest economy and the world’s largest trading bloc. 

With a population of almost half a billion, it has a huge market for lifelong education from kindergarten through to workforce up-skilling. Its close links with the EEA countries, the UK and its other geographic neighbors increase this even further.

But, as a market - it’s complicated!

Its borderless nature masks differences in how education is governed and managed, differences in language and differences in pedagogy. Europe-wide laws, such as those relating to data protection and privacy, sit alongside layers of localised regulation and procurement can be very different to other parts of the world.


Value we deliver for European education providers

We help you to :

  • spend less time and resource on integrations
  • improve the user experience for learners, teachers and support staff
  • avoid vendor lock in
  • choose tools to fit your pedagogy and processes knowing they work together
  • ensure best practice in procurement
  • influence product development
  • keep up to date with technology trends and market insights
  • learn from other centers of excellence

High quality, inclusive and accessible education, fit for the digital age, is a goal that scales up from the ambitions of individual learning providers to an ambitious vision for borderless education and training in Europe.

To deliver that vision we need an effective digital edtech ecosystem.

As education providers you need to be able to integrate products from global market leaders with in-house systems, systems mandated by professional and regulatory bodies and products from innovative start-ups that support your pedagogical approach and help you differentiate your learning and teaching in key areas.

You also need to be able to connect systems, and exchange data, across national boundaries with due record for privacy, security and ethical considerations.
