The COMMIT project is a follow up of EUCEN's project ALLUME (504635-LLP-1-2009-1-BE-ERASMUS-EMHE). The main objective of ALLUME was to explore the ways to increase the participation of universities to LLL and to give tools to universities to turn into Lifelong Learning Universities.

To understand where COMMIT comes from it would be useful to see the final products produced by ALLUME.
