CELAN: Language strategies for competitiveness and employability
The platform was initiated in September 2009 by DG Education and Culture. Stakeholders in business, industry representatives, companies, associations, trade unions, language industry representatives and others discussed the need for an enhanced awareness of the importance of languages in business.
From these discussions stems the core idea of CELAN: to create a network that provides language services to business stakeholders. The CELAN project, a network under LLP KA2 "Languages" started officially on 1 January 2011, and runs to 31 March 2013.
