Meeting Description:

The Department of Applied Linguistics of Erasmushogeschool Brussel is organising the Final Conference of the European Universities’ Network on Multilingualism (EUNoM): ‘Globalization, Modernity and Knowledge. Opportunities and challenges in a Multilingual world’. The conference will be held at the European Parliament in Brussels (Belgium) on 18th October 2012, and will be hosted by MEP Maria Badia i Cutchet (S&D, Spain).

The EUNoM project (European Universities Network on Multilingualism) is supported by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union. It looks at multilingualism, not in isolation, but in the context of globalisation, the information society, and the knowledge economy.

If interested, please, register and submit your registration by clicking on the ‘registration procedure’ you will find on the conference website:


The deadline for registration is 9 September 2012. We urge you to strictly stick to the deadline, as we have to send your personal details to the European Parliament one month prior to the event to have your access badges prepared.
