Transnational learning through local experimenting:
the creation of dynamic complementarities between economy and
an EU funded research project.
The overall objective of the
Translearn project is to develop a road map for
transnational learning for how citizens in different
socioeconomic models can make experimental use of existing
institutions, create new governance modes and collaborative
partnerships across sectors, levels and divisions of
interests. This objective will be reached through a stepwise
inductive research process containing comparative
cross-national analyses and multi-professional dialogues.
The project will take four
Nordic countries as a point of departure, and use
Slovenia as a test case for transnational learning in
small new member states. These inductive lessons from
small European countries will allow for the creation of
new empirical and conceptual tools to compare the
dynamics of change in other socioeconomic models. A
comparative assessment of the Nordic countries and EU
countries will finally be used to point out various
possible roads to growth and job creation. The project
is designed to feed simultaneously into policy processes
at several national and EU levels.
