Our vision is to create equal opportunities in and through academia. More precisely, we aim to bring together people with various skills and competences in order to do research that helps improving the situation of underprivileged groups.

Whether it be conferences, publications or other collaborations – interdisciplinary projects can be managed more easily where a network of experts already exists. For this reason, this platform serves as a tool to connect and to exchange.

Fields of expertise covered by the current members include:

  • Cognitive Linguistics (i.e., the investigation of culture-specific cognitive models as they are mirrored in language use; such models explain culture-specific patterns of thought and behaviour)
  • gender and diversity policies
  • promotion of young scholars
  • career development

We welcome new members to expand our scope of expertise!
