Learning technology experts act as an intermediary between suppliers and schools, assisting the dialogue between supply and demand in the learning technology procurement process. They provide a beyond-user experience perspective on innovations and take this perspective to quality assure the EU policy alignment. While doing so, they add benefits for many member states of the PCP investment. One of the main purposes of the LEA project is to assist consortiums to apply for funding in the learn tech procurement area. For this purpose, a variety of technological expertise is needed to assist the dialogue between supply and demand sides.
