The Intensive Programme is addressed to
research students, trainers and course managers in the
area of European Translation Studies. The first objective
is to enlarge the strong CETRA network, operative since
1989, so as to include a representative group of centres
from the new EU member states.
The second objective is to promote the standardization
of Masters Curricula and PhD research in translation
and cross-cultural communication, considered as one
of the strategic training and research areas for the
new international society.

The training session focuses on research training, staff
training and management training, including the management
of research, with special emphasis on the use of ICT
infrastructure (library equipment, courseware, e-learning).
The output is expected to be an extended cooperative
network, working towards a series of standardized research-oriented
Masters programs in Translation Studies, on the Bologna
model. This should in turn contribute to a deeper understanding
of the social and cultural role of translation, and
thus to improved communication policies and translator-training
programmes in the wider Europe.
