In all non-scientific aspects of the proposed project, the researcher will be supported by the EU-Project Management Office at the Otto-von-Guericke-University Magdeburg. This office will support the day-to-day management, such as monitoring of expense reports and cost statements. The Otto-von-Guericke University Language Centre is well-positioned to study the language auto/biographies of students learning second languages for their study and plurilingal awareness. The staff of the OVGU Language Centre are in an excellent position to study language acquisition, multilingualism and intercultural communication for and with adult learners. The particular expertise of the Language Centre lies in its work with the growing populations of international students of further and higher education from the EU and from beyond the EU 27. The valuable experience of the Language Centre with multilingual language teaching practice, and its familiarity and development of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages of the Council of Europe position it very strongly as a research hub for work on the mutli-and plurilingual learning in the project. The OVGU Language Centre also has long-standing relationships to partner universities in East and West Europe, and participates in international workshops and staff-exchange programmes, furthering the intrinsic objectives of intercultural competence, mobility and multilingual communication. https://www.ovgu.de/

ASBL Egregoros

Within the framework of a comprehensive and integrated prevention policy developed within a community located in the Brussels-Capital area, Egregoros ASBL was created ten years ago to address several objectives.  Its purpose was to prevent uncivil behaviour by creating and developing citizen relationships between tenants so as to help ensure public tranquillity.  Our action was to help improve the quality of life for the tenants by promoting “harmony within the community”.  Our missions are organised around three dual actions representing our approaches:  “LISTEN and DEAL WITH” based on direct or indirect mediation carried out by developing a role aimed at coping with emergency situations.  “LOOK-OUT” and “ACT” by ensuring a visible presence (16h/day, 7/7, 365 days/year) and promoting relationships between tenants.  HELP and GUIDE tenants toward existing structures that correspond to the issues they are facing.

Our 15 mediators are available through a toll-free hotline open from 10 a.m. to 2.00 a.m., offices open every day of the year and also thanks to our many patrols that walk round neighbourhoods and meet the residents.  Our success is based on a team that has received extensive training in mediation and on a network of partner institutions and associations.  ASBL is a general-interest service that uses the methods of mediation and adheres to its values and works within a clearly defined framework that constantly evolves to ensure the methods used match the missions to be carried out.  It also follows a strict code of ethics.  Inspired by French experiences and as the only organisation in Belgium working in this way, we organise our activities combining social mediation (in the broad sense) and a presence of night correspondents.  We ensure a continuity of action on the municipal territory by providing a framework for dialogue that gives everyone the opportunity of talking about problems affecting their private life or their community.  The key words of our action are caring and humility. We dedicate ourselves to the population, are non-judgemental and acknowledge the fact we are not always able to fix all the problems that arise.  In that event, we turn to an extended network of partners with which we carry out in-depth work.  We aim at having a “general interest” approach and when necessary we turn to “specialists” so as to meet the needs expressed by residents.  The city of Evere’s night-time and day-time mediation service is acknowledged and funded by authorities at various levels.  The city of Evere, the Brussels-Capital Region and the FPS Interior (Ministry of the Interior of Belgium) allocate annual subsidies to fund our activities (staff and running costs, training and investment expenses).  In 2011, the FSP Interior recruited the director of Egreoros to coordinate a Neighbourhood Mediation project throughout the federal territory.  Despite a promising kick-off, the project was abandoned due to a change in political priorities.  During that period, a number of contacts were established with the “Commission Fédérale de la Médiation”, official framework for mediation of federal Belgium (FR and NL) and in particular with its President Mr Bernard Castelain.  Since 2006, the ASBL is a member of the “Réseau des Villes Correspondants de Nuit  et de la Médiation sociale” (network of cities night correspondents and social mediation), a network of almost 40 French municipalities, takes part in workshops dedicated to practice sharing, ensuring practice durability and improving professional competence.

European forum for urban security (EFUS)  

The network represents 250 cities and regions from 16 countries, and aims to: 
–  promote a balanced approach to urban security that combines prevention, sanction and social cohesion;  
–  support local authorities in the design, development and evaluation of their local security policy;  
–  obtain recognition of the role of local and regional authorities in drafting and implementing national and European policies.

Efus provides support and inspiration for locally elected officials and their teams who are convinced of the necessity of working together, transcending political differences for the benefit of long-term security. In accordance with the principle of “cities helping cities” Efus fosters the sharing of experience between authorities. 

The values and principles founding Efus members’ action are gathered together in the “ities’ Manifesto: Safety, Democracyand Cities”. It is a source of support and inspiration for local authorities in the design and promotion of their security policies.

AG Cnam Lorraine

The Cnam en Lorraine centre, based in Nancy, operates all the Conservatoire national des arts et métiers’ missions on its territory.    
Due to its strategic geographical position and to the experience it has gained in European fund management it has all the qualities required to successfully ensure coordination of the new project.

http://www.cnam-grandest.fr/

The Cnam is the leading institution for vocational higher education.  Like universities, it is engaged in teaching and research missions: it comprises two schools and 14 departments and also research laboratories, some of which work jointly with the CNRS (French national research centre).  Founded in 1794, with more than 60.000 students, its third mission is to promote scientific and technical culture.

The Cnam distinguishes itself from universities in several respects:

–  it aims at developing professional skills and is therefore strongly connected to professional communities:  the degrees and diplomas it awards are accredited by the Ministry of Higher Education (LMD – Licence (bachelor), Master, Doctorate) and the Ministry of Labour (via the CNCP, Commission Nationale des Certifications Professionnelles (national commission for vocational qualification certifications)).  It is primarily intended for persons with an ongoing employment.    

–  The head office is in Paris, and it consists of a network of educational centres:   training programmes are developed throughout the national territory, including the overseas departments and territories; access to training programmes is in particular facilitated by distance learning.

UNIPD has an extensive experience in international projects and in particular in European projects.  Its International Office is in charge of UNIPD’s involvement in educational programmes such as Erasmus +, EDULINK , Erasmus Mundus et Tempus. It also manages bilateral agreements (with European countries and third countries) and other international and cooperation programmes with developing countries throughout the world.  The University of Padova is involved in international and European education networks:  CG  – Coimbra Group; TIME – Top Industrial Managers  for Europe; EUA – European University Association; SD – Network of Mediterranean Universities for Sustainable Development, and ESRUC – Eurasian Silk Road Universities Consortium.   Services linked to the International Office are:  the Accommodation service, University Language Centre, Foreigner reception service, Special Needs service and Job Placement.  The Office for International Relations assists students and teachers in their international mobility by offering assistance and providing information and financial management support.  UNIPD has always been involved in projects funded by the European Union.   In the three years prior to the request, the institution has been involved in schemes in fields of particular interest to the project.  The references of two of the projects to which it applied/from which it received funds are given below.  The FISPPA acronym stems from its four departments:  philosophy, sociology, education and applied psychology.  FISPPA was launched on the 1st of January 2012 and was the result of a convergence of researchers from various scientific fields aiming at promoting the creation of an area for scientific and cultural cooperation in which the exploration of social sciences and humanities can interact in an interdisciplinary context, while focusing on students, quality and innovation in the field of didactics.  7167 students are enrolled in the FISPPA department that coordinates 7 first year bachelor degree courses, 1 course for teachers, 8 master degree courses and 4 doctoral degree courses.  There are currently 95 doctoral students studying at the FISPPA which has 131 teaching staff and 59 administrative staff members.  

At the FISPPA, the latest areas of investigation intersect with various research traditions to achieve critical knowledge that is at the same time deeply rooted and innovative. Research topics cover inter-cultural issues, analysis of social, lifelong learning, individual choices and practices in sociocultural and historical contexts, with due consideration of basic underlying values which refer to the question of an education suited to our present-day cultural and inter-cultural context.  While it stresses the importance of a convergence and mingling of knowledge, FISPPA promotes the autonomy of research groups structured into philosophy, sociology, education and psychology departments.

LUXEMBOURG

UNIVERSITY OF LUXEMBOURG

The University of Luxembourg was founded in 2003.  It is a multilingual, international and research-oriented university.  868 professional experts (scientific and research staff) provide support to 238 professors, assistant professors and lecturers in their teaching.  It also has the advantage of being geographically close to the European institutions and to Luxembourg’s financial centre.

The University of Luxembourg consists of 3 faculties and 2 inter-disciplinary centres: – The Faculty of Science, Technology and Communication (FSTC) – The Faculty of Law, Economics and Finance (FDEF) – The Faculty of Language and Literature, Humanities, Arts and Education (FLSHASE) – The Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) – The Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB)  

A large number of academic programmes are available: – 11 Bachelor degrees, 32 Master degrees and 7 doctoral study programmes based on the Bologna Accords – 11 Vocational training and lifelong learning training courses – Bachelor students have to spend one semester abroad –  

Multilingualism:  programmes are generally taught in 2 languages French / English or French / German, some in three languages and others are entirely taught in English. – Academic staff come from 20 different countries and the 6287 students are from 110 different countries.  There are 6 high-priority research areas (2014-2017): – Computational Science – Law, focusing in particular on European Law – Luxembourg School of Finance – Educational Science – Two inter-disciplinary centres: Interdisciplinary Centre for Security, Reliability and Trust (SnT) and Luxembourg Centre for Systems Biomedicine (LCSB).  Luxembourg offers well-established leading disciplinary research and education that provides a detailed insight into the particular challenges of sustainability that come with specific systems.   The development of key interdisciplinary research areas on transport/mobility, health of the economy, green economy, economic geography and green ITC is well on track.  However, there is limited research combining natural sciences and engineering with critical perspectives developed by social sciences and humanities on how our society works.  A better understanding is required to be able to grasp and address complex social and ecological systems.  A new area of work for a science of transformative sustainability is emerging, and researchers, civil society, private businesses and governments are collaborating to change the way society and the environment interact.  Universities, whose missions combine research, teaching and civic engagement, have a major role to play in providing a model for this new form of scientific research.
