Interpretation for Conferences
The European Parliament's interpreting service can provide financial assistance in the form of grants for actions related to conference interpreter training. The aim of the grants programme is to help educate new generations of qualified conference interpreters in order to address existing shortages for some languages, to prepare for the future accession of candidate countries, and to maintain a high standard of interpreting in the European Union's official languages and the languages of its main political partners.
The Directorate-General for Logistics and Interpretation for Conferences of the European Parliament has adopted the Work Programme on financial support for training in conference interpreting. The work programme covers the academic year 2021-2022.
The call for proposals for the organisation of postgraduate courses and projects aimed at supporting interpreter training will be published later in spring 2021.
