This issue of the European Journal of University Lifelong Learning (EJULL) (peer-reviewed since 2021) focuses on lifelong learning as flexible learning in four dimensions: as digital learning for using technology to access knowledge, as professional learning for nurturing talent, as responsible learning for connecting learning with society, and as inclusive learning for a world where everyone is welcome. With flexible learning as a common frame of reference, the focus is on lifelong learning approaches, projects, and practices in higher education that concentrate on one or more of these dimensions.


The Editorial Board of this issue consists of Prof. Dr. Eva Cendon (Editor-in-Chief), Ülle Kesli (Guest editor), University of Tartu, Estonia and Prof. Dr. Kevin Orr, University of Huddersfield, United Kingdom.
