A delegation of Brazilian students visits the Translation Centre

On Tuesday, 5 July 2016, a group of around 20 students from Brazil visited the Translation Centre. They were welcomed by the Head of the Translation Department, who introduced them to the history, mission and activities of the Centre.

​The Brazilian visitors were in Luxembourg as part of a study tour organised by Mission Abroad, a non-profit organisation based in Canada that arranges academic tours for university students from Brazil. Before visiting the Translation Centre, the students had visited the Court of Justice as well as the European Investment Bank. Just after their visit, they left Luxembourg for Strasbourg to visit the European Parliament and the European Court of Human Rights. Their study tour also included visits to other EU and international organisations, such as the European Central Bank in Frankfurt, the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in Cologne, Eurojust and the International Criminal Court in The Hague.

The visitors were undergraduate and graduate students from various Brazilian universities studying International Relations, Economics, Law, Public Administration and other related majors. Their study tour offered them a great opportunity to find out how several international organisations work. They were accompanied by a former staff member of the European External Action Service who serves as a training adviser at the Institute for European Studies at Université Saint-Louis in Brussels.
 
The visitors enthusiastically thanked their host for the opportunity they had been given to learn more about multilingualism in the European Union, but also about the ecosystem of EU Agencies, which reflects the history of European construction.
