Call for papers

Two-day conference at the Université libre de Bruxelles
(Solbosch campus) – Brussels, Belgium


Tuesday 10 May 2022 | Wednesday 11 May 2022


CONTEXT
The modern labour market is increasingly challenging, demanding,
unpredictable and skill-intensive. Higher education institutions
(HEIs) are expected to prepare graduates for the world of work.
Knowledge of foreign languages is now viewed as a form of human
capital that enhances an employee’s performance and productivity
in the workplace and, hence, contributes to value creation for
an employer. LSP [Language for specific purposes] courses are
frequently aimed at teaching the language connected to students’
field of study. However, the needs of future employers need to be
taken into consideration as well.

The aim of the conference on LSP4Employability: Language Skills for Employable Graduates is to bring the project results to the public and key end-users, as well as to build on the project concepts, add value to its mission, and multiply its outputs.


There is no registration fee to participate in the conference.
