Abstract: This paper presents key findings from a foresight study on the "Future of Learning", which employed a series of structured stakeholder consultations, in different formats, involving experts, policy makers and teachers, to envisage how and what European citizens will learn in 2020-2030. The overall vision is that personalisation, collaboration and informalisation (informal learning) will be at the core of learning in the future. This article argues, based on a series of online expert consultations, in favour of formal education and training moving towards more personalised learning strategies in multi-cultural environments, stronger integration of external learning opportunities and greater institutional openness. In relation to future careers it foresees increased professional flexibility, flatter hierarchies and open knowledge exchange. In addition, experts emphasize the importance of recognizing informally acquired skills. Research on technologies for learning should contribute to realising these changes and provide evidence, applications and tools to effectively support flexible, targeted and tailor-made learning opportunities.
