BRIDGE IT: electronic Social Promotion of Intercultural Communication Expertise and Skills (Grundtvig project)

Project Details


This project is financed by Grundtvig Partnership Projects, a framework for practical co-operation activities between organisations working in the field of adult education in the broadest sense. Through this project, the partnership aims to enhance the awareness of diversity in Europe. It will tackle communication problems between service providers (i.e. adults professionally in contact with adults in mobility) and adults in mobility by working towards a European database of bureaucratic-institutional corpora (of written as well as spoken training materials) and making it available to the general public. The partnership will reflect on how the corpora could be created interactively by both trainers and learners following the SPICES methodology, the result from a previous Grundtvig project SPICES -Social Promotion of Intercultural Communication Expertise and Skills 224945-CP-1-2005-1-IT-GRUNDTVIG-G11. This will stimulate the active participation of all citizens (professionals and non-professionals) involved in intercultural communication, specifically in bureaucratic-institutional contexts.
