The main event of the Cost Action IS0703 ERN-LWE ( during 2009-2010 was the organization of 4 Training Schools in Charles University (Prague - Czech Republic) from 17 to 20 April 2010. Given the diversity of educational systems and languages, it was important to build a common multidisciplinary research programme, sharing theoretical, methodological and educational resources; to transmit research knowledge to the future generation. This was the central aim of the Training Schools in Prague. The four training panels were based on the scientific activities of the 4 working groups and on the new knowledge that have emerged after two years of networking. Regarding FP7, the Training Schools were organized in partnership with the ELDEL Marie Curie ITN (development of literacy in Europe), chaired by M. Caravolas (UK).

42 junior researchers (and 2 senior researchers for a long-life learning) from 12 countries were initially involved in the Training Schools..At the end, only 13 trainees were present in Prague because of the Icelandic volcan activity and flights cancellations. Nevertheless, the training sessions have provided a strong impact in the new generation. The latter is planning to sign up for STSMs and to contribute to Think Tank events in the next year.
