Maera – New Partners “Space Networks and Eapril”

Space Networks and Eapril are the new partners of Maera.

The Network was founded in Lille, France in 1989, and quickly grew to include a membership of some 60 institutions and universities from over 30 countries from all over Europe – as well as members from America and Africa . The network changed over the years from only languages and culture to include expert groups on business, communication, languages and cultural competence, hospitality and tourism management, entrepreneurship and educational research. Space Networks offer on-line courses, ICT platforms and development projects plus a Journal of Advances in Higher Education – ‘learning by sharing’ in a friendly international atmosphere.


The European Association for Practitioner Research on Improving Learning (EAPRIL) promotes practice-based research on learning issues in the context of initial, formal, lifelong and organisational learning. EAPRIL is unique in bringing together those interested in the crossroads between research and practice but also between education and professional learning.

EAPRIL brings together two unique sub networks that focus on learning in two specific contexts: Education and Learning in Schools and Corporate Learning.
