Short history

In June 2009, initiated by the Hermann Paul Centre for Linguistics (HPCL) Freiburg, LingNet Europe was founded by eight institutions from six European countries (Antwerpen, Bern, Bozen, Freiburg, Fribourg, Leuven, Newcastle, Santiago de Compostela). This network has successfully enhanced mobility and research collaboration between the partner institutions on all levels from Master students (including 6-8 week internships with research groups) and PhD students via Postdocs to senior academic staff (for short-term visits or long-term research stays).

As of 1 July 2014, three new institutions have joined LingNet Europe (Bergamo, Helsinki and Oslo), and the consortium as a whole has agreed to continue the second phase of its collaboration until the end of 2018. The possible continuation beyond that date and the possible expansion of the network will be discussed in 2017.
