Registration is Open for the First UPSKILLS Multiplier Event

Submitted by Elisa Gorgaini on 8 June 2021

Registration is open for the first UPSKILLS multiplier event, entitled: "Every time I hire a linguist… Emergent tech profiles for linguists, translators and language experts”.

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. 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.
