New call is open: Apply for a #travelgrant for transnational access to ELEXIS Infrastructures!

ELEXIS is a European Infrastructure which aims to foster cooperation and knowledge exchange between different research communities in lexicography in order to bridge the gap between lesser-resourced languages and those with advanced e-lexicographic experience.

A key activity of the project is to provide transnational access to existing lexicographical milieus in Europe including the resources, tools and expertise of these groups.

The fourth call for visiting grants is now open! Application deadline is January 20th 2020. Further information and participating ELEXIS hosting institutions can be found here.
