Leading technology companies and e-learning content providers have launched an industry initiative to promote e-learning in the EU. The 15 companies involved have come together to help the EU become the most competitive and dynamic knowledge-based economy in the world through the use of e-learning in schools, universities, workplaces and homes. The eLearning Industry Group will work with the European Commission, national governments, which recently established e-learning as a priority in forthcoming plans for eEurope 2005, and academia to undertake innovative projects to promote e-learning deployment in Europe. The group will provide advice to the European Commission and other national governments across Europe in essential areas such as IT and telecommunications infrastructure, open standards that facilitate the exchange of e-learning content, development of a sustainable market for e-learning content, and development of crucial professional and personal skills. They will work closely in partnership with public institutions such as governments, schools and training organisations, to develop the group's initiatives.
