Martin Volk joins management board of COST Action
NCCR PI Martin Volk joined the management board of the COST Action Language In The Human-Machine Era. This COST Action aims at preparing linguistics and its subdisciplines for the digital challenges of our times as well as at fostering the long-term dialogue between linguistics and technology developers.
NCCR officially started
The NCCR Evolving Language officially started on June 1, 2020. An official inauguration event will be held in fall at the University of Zurich. Date and location will be communicated in due course.
NCCR starting date postponed
Baring possible further decisions by the SERI or the SNSF, the starting date of the NCCR has been postponed to June 1, 2020 due to the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic. The earliest timepoint for hiring scientific staff is one month after the start date. Since this is just before the summer break, most projects will take off only by September 1.
