EUNOM conference

The Department of Applied Linguistics of Erasmushogeschool Brussel is organising the final conference of the EUNoM network, which will be held at the European Parliament in Brussels (Belgium) on 18th October 2012. The conference will be hosted by MEP Maria Badia i Cutchet (S&D, Spain).
The EUNoM project is supported by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union. It looks at multilingualism, not in isolation, but in the context of globalisation, the information society, and the knowledge economy.
This final conference in Brussels will present the main findings of the EUNoM project including policy proposals and recommendations. It will provide the basis for a consideration of the subsequent elaboration of the network activities.
It will address the main dilemmas facing those within Universities struggling with the rapid theoretical and applied changes that derive from globalization and reflexive modernity. These are issues that no single discipline can handle alone, and any future focus on multilingualism is obliged to extend beyond the boundaries of education and linguistics.
These developments oblige a new understanding of the nature of language, how it is anchored in society and how the various institutions of higher education are obliged to come to terms with these developments.
The wider context of the 2010 Lisbon strategy will be borne in mind.
