We are delighted to announce that the final conference of the EuroUnderstanding EUROCORES programme of the ESF will take place at Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian 8, 9 and 10 May 2014.

The conference Understanding and Misunderstanding has four main themes: concepts, communication, coordination and normativity. 5 keynote speakers, Uta and Chris Frith, Barbara Malt, Simon Garrod and Ulrike Heuer, join members and associate partners of the EuroUnderstanding collaborative research projects to offer their contribution to questions on the four themes.
