This paper outlines how the Network of Excellence in professional learning (PROLEARN) influences European and world-wide research in the area of technology enhanced professional learning. Two new European projects, iCamp and Prolix serve as excellent examples of the impact of PROLEARN. The establishment of the professional learning cluster (PRO-LC) that bases on PROLEARN and its results further proves the urgency for a European wide organization in the area of research in technology enhanced professional learning.
