Global Gateway - International Operating Environments
We help companies and organisations to develop their international skills in order to rise to the challenges posed by diverse and constantly changing working environments. In particular, the development of communication technologies enables the emergence of new ways of communication. By combining linguistic and cultural competence with effective communication, organisations’ competitive advantage in international environments strengthens. Research and development projects form an essential part of cooperation with working life.
In addition to working-life cooperation, the aim of our research and development projects is to develop and enhance language teachers’ competence to better suit changing environments.
At the moment, the Global Gateway research group is focusing on the following issues:
- technology-supported communication in working life
- developing language teaching methods and practices
- developing teachership
- L2 (second language; the language learned after the first language).
We collaborate with associations, companies, organisations, higher education institutions, and research and development centres all over Europe.
