The purpose of the Erasmus Plus STT week on Academic Writing in Ireland is to foster the advancement of English skills for academic purposes among participants. In the contemporary world the ‘publish or perish’ academic culture means that it is crucial for academics to use language at an advanced level for the purpose of scientific publication (Scopus®, Web of ScienceTM, etc.) and the preparation of advanced grant proposals (such as Horizon 2020, Fulbright, etc.).
