EAGLE will significantly advance the state-of-the-art in public administration learning and introduce the technology through our validation and associated partners in real-life rural local government environments. More particularly, this project will:

  • Stimulate the take-up of learning technologies in local government;
  • Reinforce the evidence-based assessment of learning technologies’ effectiveness;
  • Encourage the innovative use of learning technologies;
  • Allow employees in public administrations to acquire skills more timely and effectively;
  • Increase awareness on the benefits of the adoption of learning technologies.
