This event is organised by the Erasmus + project UPSKILLS in which CLARIN is participating
Date: 25 June 2021
Time: from 10:00 to 16:00
Location: CLARIN Virtual Zoom meeting
The first UPSKILLS multiplier event, entitled: Every time I hire a linguist… Emergent tech profiles for linguists, translators and language experts, will bring together students, academics, industry and institutional representatives, to present and discuss the first results of the UPSKILLS project and provide opportunities for networking. After a vision statement by a representative of the European Commission’s DGT, we will 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.
In the morning session, representatives from the language industry and research centres will describe some of the tasks for which they hire language and linguistics experts. In the afternoon, staff and students from two Master’s degrees integrating languages and technology will present their experience. The event will conclude with an interactive session in which participants are invited to contribute their views on emergent tech profiles for linguists, translators and language experts.
All interested parties are welcome, but participation is encouraged for students from languages, linguistics and translation degrees.
