The LILIS conference, took place in March 1996, under the auspices of the European Commission (DG III, DG V and DG XXII) and is considered as one of the major events of the European Year of Lifelong Learning.

The primary objective of this Conference was to contribute in raising the general awareness of European industries, institutions, educational organizations and individuals about the new cultural attitudes which should be encouraged in order to face the strong impact which is expected to derive from the birth of the Information Society.


The Conference was organized by ETNOTEAM, an Italian software development company, in collaboration with three Business Schools: London Business School (UK) and INSEAD (France).
