Enhancing knowledge through multilingualism
01.09.2015 - 30.09.2019
Detailed Description

The project is carried out by EURAC on behalf of Pensplan, the regional institute for supplementary pension schemes. It aims at developing multilingualism and language competences within the company. The main focus lies on developing passive language competences and fostering functional bilingualism. Strategies for multilingual knowledge management and optimising text production/translation are also central within the project.

During the first two years, EURAC researchers analyse language competences with the help of focus groups, a survey, interviews and a language test. The collected information is used to prepare a tailored plan of actions and measures to be implemented within Pensplan (e.g. training and specific projects). EURAC acts as a scientific consultant for the entire duration of the project, monitoring the developments and implementation. If required by Pensplan, during the third year EURAC will offer specific information, training and cooperation/advice for specific projects, especially on multilingual knowledge management and translation.

In December 2016 the project won the European Language Label - subsection lifelong learning. The label is an award encouraging new initiatives in the field of teaching and learning languages, the rewarding of new techniques in language teaching, and spreading the knowledge of languages' existence, thereby promoting good practice.
