BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE ORGANISATION
With 20 years of policy-making history, the association brings together committed language specialists from around the European continent and beyond to support Europe's language infrastructure, improving societal and individual multilingualism and promoting quality language learning.
Filling a unique niche in Europe's language panorama, the CEL/ELC has unique contact to universities, language institutions, the Council of Europe, and the European Commission, mediating at the various levels to envisage, anticipate and adapt to the future language landscape.
Membership in the CEL/ELC grants institutions and language specialists access to a wide variety of projects and like-minded colleagues in similar language fields, and is open to all institutions of higher education and all national and international associations with a special interest in languages. Additionally, we accept applications for associate membership for individuals.
The association's permanent secretariat is at Università Cattolica, Milan (Italy).
