CELAN – Promoting Languages for Business
The CELAN project, a network under the Lifelong Learning Programme's "Languages" action started officially on 1 January 2011 and will last 24 months. The project’s principal objective is to facilitate dialogue in the field of languages between the business community and language practitioners. The project activities include:
- Research on linguistic needs of European companies/SMEs in different sectors
- Analysis of existing language-related services and tools
- Development of on-line applications to support the language needs of business users
CELAN started its activities by launching a blog for regular updates and interaction with readers inside and outside the consortium. Participating organisations are all members of the Business Platform for Multilingualism or linked to such members. The network will engage in information and awareness raising activities to guarantee Europe-wide impact.
CELAN is co-funded by the European Commission's Lifelong Learning Programme.
