The European Association for Practitioner Research on Improving Learning (EAPRIL) promotes practice-based research on learning issues in the context of initial, formal, lifelong and organisational learning. EAPRIL is unique in bringing together those interested in the crossroads between research and practice but also between education and professional learning.

EAPRIL brings together two unique sub networks that focus on learning in two specific contexts: Education and Learning in Schools and Corporate Learning. Our annual Conference thus offers activities allowing to interconnect and exchange research and experience with fellow researchers and practitioners across a variety of fields.
