Mobility and Inclusion in Multilingual Europe (MIME) – A preview of research results - 27 April 2017, Brussels

[Source: Research & Innovation] The MIME project answers the Commission's request for analysis and practical orientationsregarding the handling of individual and societal multilingualism in a time of change. Theproject presents several notable features. In particular, it is focused on the public policyaspects of multilingualism, and aims to provide useful conceptual tools, helping decisionmakers to weigh the pros and cons of various strategies for handling the multilingualchallenge in a variety of contexts. It is also deeply interdisciplinary and combines the inputsof no less than ten different disciplines. This event is primarily destined for people whose work in politics, policy or administrationleads them to ponder the advantages and drawbacks of alternative language policy choices.We are, in particular, interested in feedback that will help us to efficiently fine-tune, for thebenefit of users, communication about research-backed language policy tools in order tomake them as accessible and useful as possible.
