In July 2019, 13 observers joined the ELEXIS network. The community is now made up of 17 partner and 33 observer institutions from 30 different countries.

If you wish to join the ELEXIS family as an observer to receive exclusive invitations and access to various services and tools, be informed of the most up-to-date developments in the field of lexicography, and several other benefits, you can still apply for observer status.

If you are looking for more in-depth information about the benefits that come with the observer status, please see our benefits description, Vienna observer event recordings, and FAQ.
