Conférence internationale permanente d'instituts universitaires de traducteurs et interprètes Excellence in T&I training and research

Standing Committees

Certain functions within CIUTI are delegated to subcommittees. Some of them are temporary and established on a case-by-case basis.

Here are the subcommittees which perform permanent functions:

Admission Commission

The Admis­sion Com­mis­sion com­pris­es mem­bers of the CIUTI Board plus one or two exter­nal experts. With­in the appli­ca­tion pro­ce­dure for CIUTI mem­ber­ship, the Admis­sion Com­mis­sion screens and assess­es the appli­cants’ Self-Assess­ment Reports (SAR). If the SAR war­rants fur­ther con­sid­er­a­tion of the mem­ber­ship appli­ca­tion, the Admis­sion Com­mis­sion sends two CIUTI experts to the can­di­date insti­tute for an on-site eval­u­a­tion of the teach­ing and research facil­i­ties. On the basis of the SARs and the experts’ reports, the Admis­sion Com­mis­sion will arrive at an opin­ion and will present a rec­om­men­da­tion for admis­sion or non-admis­sion to the Gen­er­al Assem­bly.

Regional Development Group

CIUTI was ini­ti­at­ed in Europe, but over decades of care­ful devel­op­ment, its euro­cen­tric roots have grown to a tru­ly world-wide net­work of top-qual­i­ty T&I insti­tutes. This sub-com­mit­tee explores pos­si­bil­i­ties of expand­ing the CIUTI mis­sion for T&I excel­lence to new regions.

Strategy Group

The Strat­e­gy Group is con­cerned with medi­um- and long-term devel­op­ment of CIUTI’s vision, mis­sion, and goals. The SG elab­o­rates pro­pos­als and projects and sub­mits them to the Con­seil for dis­cus­sion, approval and pre­sen­ta­tion to the Gen­er­al Assem­bly.

Train the Trainers”-Group

CIUTI insti­tutes set exam­ples of best prac­tices and pro­vide guid­ance for oth­er and emerg­ing T&I insti­tutes all over the world. With­in CIUTI’s over­all con­cept of qual­i­ty assur­ance, one key aspect is the qual­i­ty of T&I train­ers. To meet CIUTI stan­dards, T&I train­ers should embody the Leib­niz prin­ci­ple “theo­ria cum praxi”, i.e. they should teach on a sound basis of the­o­ret­i­cal knowl­edge com­bined with prac­ti­cal skills and expe­ri­ence. The “Train the Train­ers Group” looks into pos­si­bil­i­ties of pro­mot­ing this objec­tive.
