  1. 1. Learning Technology Research Institute Major Project 2011: MATURE MATURE: a large EC- funded project One of the major projects of the LTRI is as a partner in MATURE, an EU FP7 Large- scale Integrating Project, which examines how social network tools amplify learn- ing in the workplace. See http://mature-ip.eu/overview 88MATURE - Continuous Social Learning in Knowledge Networks ‘Knowledge maturing’ is a new perspective on know- ledge development in the workplace. It looks at how individual activities and learning processes contribute to overall progress of the organisation, its innovative- ness and agility. It unveils barriers where this doesn’t happen, and it shows ways to overcome them using TEL. Partnership for Impact in 2011 Ongoing UK support for knowledge maturation in Careers Guidance through an approach to partnerships with the University of Warwick. In 2011, a member of the Warwick team was invited to attend No. 10 Downing Street to contribute to high-level policy discussions, facilitated by the Cabinet Office, on the role of TEL in Labour Market Information. In November, a member of LTRI was part of a group to talk to the Department of Business Innovation and Skills (BIS). The EC see TEL as central to creating jobs and as indis- pensable in contributing to key societal challenges. LTRI made the point to BIS that TEL should be given the same priority as motorways.
