Description Masaryk University places great emphasis on supporting and developing lifelong learning for all professional and age groups. It is aware of the importance of further development of lifelong learning. Therefore, it wants to focus on gaining foreign experience in preparation, stepwise ensurement, and final implementation of lifelong learning programs. That is why a project called „Lifelong Learning without Borders“ was created in 2018. Masaryk University's partner in this program is the Danube University in Krems, Austria, which focuses on adult education. The aim of the project is long-term cooperation, transfer of experience, joint implementation of activities, and simultaneous involvement of both countries' participants in educational activities. Demonstrations of planned activities will take place in both countries as part of the project promotion. Specifically, lectures in the field of astronomy, which are intended for those interested in further education will be presented. Following there will be a joint four-day interactive bilingual course entitled „Universe without Borders“. The course topic was prepared based on a survey. The course will take place in Telč in the Czech Republic. It is intended for Austrian and Czech citizens interested in further education. The new course will serve as a template for the creation of other courses. Both project partners are involved in its preparation. Before the end of the project, the project partners will meet in Brno, the Czech Republic, where all project activities will be evaluated. The expected outcome of the project is to share the offer of activities implemented within the framework of lifelong learning programs.
