EARLI exists to support and promote an active research culture in the field of learning and instruction. EARLI enables about 2000 members from 56 countries to engage in critical dialogue. They systematically exchange and discuss ideas on instructional and educational research, as well as on research on industrial training. For these scholars, drawn from all parts of Europe and many parts of the world, EARLI provides a platform to contribute to current debates. Through its networks, activities and the publication of journals and book series, EARLI promotes both international and interdisciplinary cooperation.
EARLI has grown as an association over the past 25 years and this is clearly visible in the increase of members and participants of the EARLI biennial conferences. EARLI members originate from 56 different countries, and these are the top five countries represented within EARLI:
3. United Kingdom

After the conference in Exeter in 2011, EARLI had 2339 members of which 604 were JURE members.
