UNIVERSEH Erasmus+ programme
The University of Luxembourg is part of the Erasmus+ programme UNIVERSEH (European Space University for Earth and Humanity) which was founded as a new university partnership for the comprehensive development of the space sector in Europe. In this programme, the University of Luxembourg is an alliance partner with the Heinrich-Heine University Düsseldorf, AGH University of Science & Technology Krakow, the Luleå University of Technology and the Université Fédérale Toulouse Midi-Pyrénées.
The Language Centres in this partnership offer a range of language courses available for UNIVERSEH students as to promote multilingualism and mobility between the partner universities.

Bilingualism Matters Luxembourg
Bilingualism Matters Luxembourg opened in March 2021. The branch is hosted by the Faculty of Humanities, Education and Social Sciences at the University of Luxembourg. Dr Claudine Kirsch, Associate Professor in Languages, is joined by a team of active researchers on multilingualism from social, educational and psychological perspectives. The branch aims to provide scientific knowledge, information and advice to teachers, educators, university lecturers, parents, health and other professionals, managers in multilingual organizations, researchers, as well as policy-makers.
RECTEC + (2019-2021)
The actual implementation of the competency-based approach to the University in an articulated way with professional training and work situations, is a major challenge for course engineering and the professionalization of European populations, especially those who navigate between levels 3, 4 and 5 of the European Qualifications Framework (EQF).
The RECTEC + project aims to build courses of professionalization and studies correlated to CEC levels based on the graduated cross-curricular competencies corresponding to each level of certification. Belgium, France, Luxembourg and Romania are mobilizing 7 strategic partners for the RECTEC + project around the Public Interest Group for Continuing Education and Professional Integration (GIP FCIP) of the project leader Versailles Academy.
Three intellectual productions combined in a methodological guide constitute the deliverables co-developed during a 24-month project, ending with a symposium in September 2021 in Paris. These productions will be available in French and English.
Erasmus + Language Centres network in the Greater Region (2018-2020)
The University of Luxembourg is coordinating a joint online language-learning network, a new project involving the Language Centres at the six universities in the Greater Region (the University of Luxembourg, the University of Kaiserslautern, the University of Liège, the University of Lorraine, Saarland University and Trier University).
The six universities have developed an online course together in German and French geared towards students in the Greater Region who are planning to complete an exchange semester in a German- or French-speaking area, as well as students from outside the Greater Region who come to one of the six UniGR universities for an exchange.

COST Action 15221 WeReLaTe (2016-2020)
This Action addresses the challenge of creating synergy among increasingly more specialised and centralised supports for four key higher education activities – research, writing, teaching and learning – which frequently fail to capitalise on their shared territories. In many institutions, central support for these four areas continues to grow, repeatedly in a reactive rather than strategic manner, in the form of sometimes overlapping programmes or activities, centres, institutes and other units.
This responsive growth, often influenced by external forces, can result in the goals, structures and services of these central supports being less than optimal. Equally, what contributes to success, productivity and quality of outcomes, across research, writing, teaching and learning, can remain tacit, ill defined or indeed invisible. Our Action addresses the dearth of professional conversations and research around the shared territory of support for, and development of, these four areas. Such dialogue and research, across units and institutions, will illuminate intersections and contribute to institutional transformation based on complementary, coherent and integrated provision.
