Writing academically becomes a major challenge in the new European Higher Education Area, where undergraduates are being required to write their essays and exams in English. Due to the interdisciplinary nature of the L2 writing field, each ReN member has focused on a specific area within academic writing: students’ attitudes towards L2 writing, grammatical features, translation issues and interferences between L1-L2, pedagogical implications and formal evaluation and assessment. Ongoing research stages in our ReN are related to the measurement of students’ awareness of their own L2 academic production as well as to a qualitative analysis of their attitudes towards writing.
