Dear PLINGers,

We would like to invite you to attend the first multiplier event of the
*UPSKILLS* <https://upskillsproject.eu/> Erasmus+ project, entitled: "*Every
time I hire a linguist… Emergent tech profiles for linguists, translators
and language experts.*” The event will take place on *Zoom*, on *Friday 25
June 2021*.

*Brief description*:
This one day event brings together students, academics, industry and
institutional representatives, to present and discuss the first results of
the UPSKILLS project and provide opportunities for networking. After a
vision statement by a representative of the European Commission’s DGT, we
will present a needs analysis in which we surveyed the academic literature
on the subject, courses offered by language and linguistics curricula
across Europe, and job positions. Two sessions will follow: in the first
one, representatives from the language industry and research centres will
describe some of the tasks for which they hire language and linguistics
experts, while in the second staff and students from two Master’s degrees
integrating languages and technology will present their experience. The
event concludes with an interactive session in which participants are
invited to contribute their views on emergent tech profiles for linguists,
translators and language experts.

Participation is free but registration is required. Please register here
You will receive a Zoom link one day before the event.

All interested parties are welcome, but we would particularly encourage
students from languages, linguistics and translation degrees to attend, to
find out about opportunities for their future professional careers and
educational paths.

Kind regards,
