Promoting multilingualism and contributing to the development and use of native languages in the field of law and new technologies is one of the main objectives of the EMILDAI programme.
Over the past few decades, English has become a language of international use in the field of digital technologies and international cooperation. The experts of the Digital Decade, by working in a globalised environment, should master this lingua franca, and at the same time be able to interact with national stakeholders through their local language. In the EU, in particular, there are other languages that play a significant role at institutional level. The solution to this issue is to foster multilingualism to ensure inclusion and prevent the erection of language barriers. To address this need, EMILDAI aims to offer preparatory language courses as well as compulsory and optional specialist modules in both law and computing in the native language of the partner institutions (French, English, Spanish and Italian) in order to foster students’ acquisition and use of linguistic and intercultural skills in their native or second language.
