Five visiting grants 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.

In the visiting grants, researchers/lexicographers within the EU member states or associated countries are invited to apply for free-of-charge access to and support in one of the below mentioned lexicographical infrastructures.

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.

Via short and long-term visiting grants (between 5 and 15 days), researchers will be able to experiment with and work on data in a context of mutual knowledge exchange.

Researchers are invited to apply for free-of-charge access to and support in one of the 10 ELEXIS infrastructures:

During the grant visits, the hosting institutions will provide support in terms of lexicographical and IT manpower expertise.

Interested researchers/lexicographers should make an application, describing background, purpose, etc., which will be assessed by a committee:

ELEXIS recommends that the applicant contacts the hosting institution about their project before they apply.

The project application should include:
• a project and time plan
• arguments for why a visit to the particular host infrastructure is relevant for their project
• a budget estimate
