EUNoM is an ambitious European project that looks at multilingualism in the context of globalisation, the information society, and the knowledge economy from various perspectives. It is thus the aim of the project not to look at multilingualism in isolation, but to look at its role in society and its various elements.
EUNoM is a project supported by the Lifelong Learning Programme of the European Union that will run from 2009-2012. During this period steps will be taken to ensure continuity of the project after the funding period.

Seven full partners participate in the EUNoM project:
Apart from those full partners, around twenty universities, research centres, and pan-European organisations are involved as associated partners.
Five symposia will be held, targeting specific themes relevant to the European Commission’s focus on multilingualism, and highlighting cutting-edge research and good practice. The project will be concluded with a sixth and final conference that will be held in Brussels. At this final conference the main findings of the project will be presented, including policy proposals and recommendations. The proceedings will be published and disseminated.

The EUNoM website provides more information about the project in general, symposia and other events that will be organised, as well as an online discussion forum.
