The NCFU delegation was Alina Levitskaya (Rector; Member of Presidential Council for Russian Language; Professor of Dept for Russian Language) and Vyacheslav Khodus (Head of dept for Russian Language).

There were numerous topics discussed concerning new ways to promote the Russian language in the European context, and there was a special need identified – to have more translators from French into Russian.

Alina Levitskaya in her speech focusing on the development of the spoken Russian competence noted that "the development of the Russian identity, the culture of international and multi-confessional interaction … is one of the major areas of activities for the teaching and research staff of the NCFU”. The speech was followed with a lot of discussion, after which numerous meetings were held with the leading Russian and foreign experts.On the International Translators Day the participants of the Forum visited the International University of Rome (UNINT), which is one of the largest European centers for translators training. The trainees here are offered field placement in various international organizations. On the same day a Cooperation Agreement was signed between the NCFU and the UNINT, while the heads of the two Institutions discussed and potentially outlined areas for cooperation and joint degree program development.
