ENLU was the first major project contracted by the CEL/ELC and was coordinated by the Freie Universität Berlin. It was one of the seven projects selected in the frame of the European Commission's Call for proposals EAC/45/03, issued in preparation of the Commission's Action Plan Promoting Language Learning and Linguistic Diversity (2004-2006).
ENLU was driven by the vision that all graduates in Europe should:
The main objective of the two-year project was the creation of a European network of higher education institutions and other stakeholder organisations designed to achieve a breakthrough in the area of "languages for all". ENLU represents the CEL/ELC's response to the linguistic and cultural challenges posed by the creation of the European higher education and research areas, and by the Lisbon Strategy.
The closing conference of the ENLU project was held in the presence of Commissioner Ján Figel in Nancy on 7-8 April 2006.
The reports of the various Nancy workshops can be found in the left-hand margin. All other documents are available on the project website under "documents" or in our archive.
