Meeting Description:

The international symposium 'Higher Education and Research on
Multilingualism: Challenge or Opportunity?' is the second in a series
of symposia organised as part of the EUNoM project. EUNoM (European
Universities Network on Multilingualism) ( <> )
focuses on multilingualism in the context of globalisation, the
information society, and the knowledge economy.

At this symposium, the following themes will be addressed:

- The multilingual university: language policy at the level of the
institute (visibility within the university, relationship with the
linguistic environment, internal and external communication,
- The contribution that universities in general and the EUNoM network
in particular can make to the development of the Council of Europe's
and the European Commission's language policies, especially to the
EU's 8th Framework Programme.
- The relation between the regional and the global level. What impact
do higher education establishments have in engaging in research in
order to help to change the self-image, and the perspectives of
'minority' language communities?

EUNoM is co-funded by the European Union through the Lifelong Learning
