Welcome to Encell

Encell, the National Centre for Lifelong Learning, is the principal national organisation responsible for conducting research in and disseminating knowledge about lifelong education and learning. Encell is run under the auspices of Jönköping University Foundation,  and its organisational host is the School of Education and Communication (HLK).

Essay competition on lifelong learning

Lifelong learning is essential, not only to fostering competitiveness in the knowledge economy, but also for personal fulfillment. To stimulate interest in the various aspects of lifelong learning, Encell has established an essay competition for students at Swedish universities.

Every year authors of the two winning essays are each awarded 10,000 Swedish crowns.
