Universities, governments and businesses have to commit to multilingualism to adapt to the challenges of globalization


European universities have to make a greater commitment to multilingualism as it enhances student creativity and competitiveness. This means that not only must they make better use of existing ICT tools to aid learning and online work in different languages, but they should also consider developing these technologies. This is one of the principal conclusions of the European Union funded EUNoM project, which the Universitat Oberta de Catalunya (Open University of Catalonia, UOC) has been coordinating for three years and in which numerous European universities and acclaimed international experts have participated. The final recommendations are being presented to the European Parliament today, which will mark the culmination of the project.
