The EMT network is the forum where EMT member universities meet, exchange good practices in translation teaching, and discuss future developments.
It now has 54 members, including one non-EU programme with observer status.
The selection procedure 2013-14 to renew the network is ongoing. Assessors from a committee of experts will examine applications in detail. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of the selection procedure by 2 June 2014 at the latest. Further selection rounds will most likely be organised every five years.
For admission, universities have to prove that their translator training course complies with a minimum set of quality criteria, i.e. the course should cover a broad range of competences and be tailored to suit market demands. Only the members of the network are awarded the EMT quality label (a registered EU trademark since June 2012) and, in return, they are expected to promote the EMT standards of excellence.

The EMT members hold regular network meetings. They also run the EMT wiki where they can share ideas and get updates on the network's activities. It is open to network members and all institutions that have ever submitted an application (even if they were not selected). If you'd like to get access, contact us for details.
