Scientific Advisory Board

The Scientific Advisory Board, consisting of (inter)national researchers who are excellent representatives of our field, monitors the quality of our research and educational programme. It receives Annual Reports and meets with a representative group of Language in Interaction researchers every second year. On this basis, it advises the Scientific Board of our consortium on the design and implementation of the research programme and on the achievement of its scientific aims.
