High Level Expert Group on Literacy

On 1 February 2011, the European Commission launched a High-Level Expert Group on Literacy, with the aim of giving visibility and political importance to the issue of raising literacy levels in Europe. The Group will analyse scientific evidence and best practices and evaluate what policies can be the most effective. The 11 members of the Group, chaired by Princess Laurentien of the Netherlands, are experts on literacy from academia, politics and business.

  • FEP contacted all the members of the HLG offering support and expertise for their task.
  • FEP contributed to the informal input-gathering of the High Level Group on Literacy and presented the collected material on literacy initiatives by publishers.
