EARLI supports a number of research initiatives to further the development of learning research in new and innovative directions. With Advanced Study Colloquia (ASC), the EARLI Centre for Innovative Research (E-CIR) and Mentoring Grants for JURE members. EARLI wishes to firmly position itself as a driving force behind the ever changing field of learning research.  And through the EARLI Awards, the association also wishes to decorate the best and most valuable contributions to the field.

Advanced Study Colloquium (ASC)

EARLI annually hosts and funds an Advanced Study Colloquium (ASC). The scientific scope of an ASC is to take stock of an established research domain or to open a new domain within the field of learning and instruction. In either case, an ASC is a meeting of senior and junior researchers where they explore new ground and focus on both the key issues and the methodological aspects. It is expected that an ASC will lead to an output that has substantial impact for research on learning and instruction.

EARLI Centre for Innovative Research (E-CIR)

The EARLI Centre for Innovative Research aims to stimulate innovative research among EARLI members and to help prepare research proposals for funding. EARLI will grant one E-CIR per year, each for a 4 year period.
