Evolving Language aims to bridge the gap between research and the lay public. This is why we encourage our community to participate in several outreach projects. Below you can find the activities we’re involved in.
Showcasing women in scientific research
Female researchers associated with the NCCR Evolving Language have invited themselves in a few classrooms in Geneva through the “A researcher in my class” project!
