About the Forum

The Forum is a flexible mechanism for exploring shared research agendas and scoping opportunities for interdisciplinary research.

The IRC will facilitate round-table meetings, limited to around 20 participants. Any research group leader with a profile in the language sciences Research Directory may propose a topic for the Forum by contacting either of the IRC Directors, Prof. Ann Copestake and Prof. Ianthi Tsimpli

Reports of all meetings will be made available here for members of the research network (Raven authentication required).

The Research Incubator Fund provides a potential source of funding for exploratory research as a follow-on from these meetings.

NEXT FORUM MEETINGS:

Language, brains and machines (meeting 2) 15 October 2018. Convenor: Dr Paula Buttery

Education in challenging contexts (meeting 2). Date to be confirmed. Convenor: Prof. Ianthi Tsimpli.
