Call for submissions for the 2012-2015 ECML programme of activities

The European Centre for Modern Languages of the Council of Europe (ECML) invites submissions for its fourth medium-term programme (2012-2015).

This new programme reflects both the mission of the Centre and the current concerns of its member states and partners in the area of language education. It is based on a long-term vision aiming at developing inclusive, plurilingual and intercultural pedagogic approaches reaching beyond the foreign language classroom and encompassing all linguistic abilities and needs of all groups of learners in a lifelong-learning process (in-school and out-of-school). This vision is based upon concepts recently developed by the Language Policy Division of the Council of Europe and recommendations adopted by the Committee of Ministers representing the Council’s 47 member states.

This website is designed to stimulate interest in the forthcoming programme and provide key information on the submission process. It contains the framework for the ECML programme 2012-2015, the envisaged content and practical information for experts interested in becoming involved.
