The twenty-third edition of the SCIC-Universities conference will focus on developments in the interpreting profession and what that means in terms of training future generations of interpreters.
The winner of the Young Interpreters Award will be presented with the award and will share their speech on the subject of preparing for the future: "The future belongs to those who prepare for it today.” (Quote from Malcolm X, influential African American human rights activist (1925-1965)
The conference will include updates on DG Interpretation's:
- Trends in Interpreting
- Knowledge Centre on Interpretation
- System of support to universities
There will be discussion panels made up of experts (external and internal) to discuss the future of the profession, followed by a university-led discussion on adapting curricula to new realities.
