The objectives of this network are to:
  • Share and study approaches and theories in different languages even if English would be the main language for communication (but we also communicate in French, Spanish, Portuguese, German and, through our members, in many other languages)
  • Collaborate in the development of research projects and programmes
  • Generate a common resource data base with references, links, event calendar
  • Advertise events, publications, projects, and professional opportunities
  • Organise an annual meeting, either independently or in collaboration with an academic association or event (financed through academic funds and /or participation fees)
  • Contribute to the running of a regularly published academic journal
  • Longer term objective to attract sponsorship for research grant schemes and doctoral and postdoctoral fellowships
