The recognition of LLL programmes by educational institutions is a cornerstone of the EU-MILL project.
In this chapter, we summarize the project approaches towards the recognition of LLL, including the implementation of a Methodological Framework, a Credit and Competences system, Quality Assurance assessment and Regional and National Qualification Frameworks. The development of these instrumentsis a key aspect to assist recognition and increase transparency and comparability, providing great benefits to lifelong learners. Taking into consideration the importance of the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) as a reference in the south Mediterranean context, an extensive summary of the main elements of the ECTS user's Guide (European Commission, 2009, 2015a) is present in the current chapter.
