Listiac Project Partners in Europe
Åbo Akademi University, Finland
Åbo Akademi University (ÅAU) is an internationally acknowledged research university with an extensive responsibility for preserving the Swedish educational and cultural heritage as the only Swedish-speaking multi-disciplinary university in Finland. Given the societally minority position of Swedish in officially bilingual Finland, the university’s research profile
Minority Studies is simultaneously both natural and nationally unique. It is within this strategic minority research profile that the LISTiac staff members at ÅAU has taken on the role of coordinator. The project makes a perfect match to already on-going research and activities of the Åbo Akademi University profile, and supplements well the need for notifying increased language-diversity especially in the field of education.
