Founded in 1993, the Institute for Specialised Communication and Multilingualism originally focussed on research into “Language and Law”, but over the years, it has steadily expanded its remit to take in the areas of multilingualism and specialised communication. As a result, the Institute now holds an established position in the international scientific community of Applied Linguistics.
The various projects carried out at the Institute can be subdivided into three main research topics:
- Bilingualism and multilingualism
- Specialised communication
- Language technologies
