We would like to invite you to attend the first multiplier event of the UPSKILLS Erasmus+ project, entitled: "Every time I hire a linguist… Emergent tech profiles for linguists, translators and language experts.” The event will take place on Zoom, on Friday 25 June 2021.
This one day event brings together students, academics, industry and institutional representatives, to present and discuss the first results of the UPSKILLS project and provide opportunities for networking. We will first of all present a needs analysis in which we surveyed the academic literature on the subject, courses offered by language and linguistics curricula across Europe, and job positions. Then, after a vision statement by a representative of the European Commission’s DGT, two sessions will follow: in the first one, representatives from the language industry and research centres will describe some of the tasks for which they hire language and linguistics experts, while in the second staff and students from two Master’s degrees integrating languages and technology will present their experience. The event concludes with an interactive session in which participants are invited to contribute their views on emergent tech profiles for linguists, translators and language experts.
Participation is free but registration is required. Please register here.
You will receive a Zoom link one day before the event.
All interested parties are welcome, but we would particularly encourage students from languages, linguistics and translation degrees to attend, to find out about opportunities for their future professional careers and educational paths.
