EPICUR Multilingualism Event
15/10/2020 @ 14:00 – 16:30 Amsterdam/virtual
The EPICUR European University alliance invites you to join the EPICUR Multilingualism event !
This will be a blended event as a limited number of people will be able to participate physically in Amsterdam and everything will be live broadcasted online allowing everyone to participate virtually.
EPICUR’s ambition is to become the preferred supplier on Multilingualism in Europe. The alliance is working hard to safeguard and strengthen European linguistic diversity in European Higher Education.
During the event we will discuss linguistic diversity at European Higher Education institutions and showcase good practices in developing institutional language policies and facilitating inclusive governance within European Higher Education.
As a first deliverable in achieving this, the EPICUR Statement on Multilingualism will be officially presented at the event and signed by all EPICUR rectors and presidents.
- Introduction and Welcome President Deneken (University of Strasbourg)

- EPICUR and the European Education Area: comments by the European Commission (t.b.c.)
