SECOND RECTORS' CONFERENCE
European Parliament, Brussels 18-19 October 2012

New Technologies and Education for Multilingualism - Going Global

In order to fulfil its democratic mandate, the European Parliament must ensure the highest possible degree of multilingualism. This cannot be guaranteed without the daily support of highly skilled conference interpreters. The universities training interpreters are our most important partners when it comes to securing their availability and quality.

The European Parliament has been assisting universities in this important task for many years now. Student mobility programmes at EU level, rapid development of information and communication technologies in higher education and interpreter training, and recent research in areas like neurolinguistics offer new opportunities to be explored in our cooperation with universities.

The second Rectors' Conference, organised by the European Parliament Directorate-General for Interpretation and Conferences, will examine how the strategic partnership with universities training interpreters can be enhanced in the future. The event will bring together rectors, presidents and vice-chancellors of universities, heads of interpreting departments and other key stakeholders from EU member states and beyond. A wide range of issues will be discussed, such as:
