The Lab was established in 2016 by the Department of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics of the School of English, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (FEK 1771/17-6-2016).
The aim of the laboratory is to promote research in the fields of foreign language learning, teaching and assessment within the school context of preschool, primary and secondary education, thereby deepening the understanding of the linguistic and cognitive processes underlying foreign language learning.
Our ultimate objective is to improve the status of foreign language education in Greece and to explore the possibility of research proposals aiming to contribute to the improvement of foreign language education in Greece at policy but also at teaching practice level.
The Laboratory of Translation, Interpreting and Communication (TICL) was established in 2018 (National Gazette issue B 689/28-02-2018).
TICL views interdisciplinarity as a necessary tool toward promoting dialogue and strengthening the synergetic potential across its relevant fields. TICL aims to boost knowledge and research in the fields of Translation, Interpretation and Communication, all seen broadly in a multilingual, multicultural and multimodal environment, through research projects and events (seminars, symposia, conferences) with the participation of well-established professionals and scholars from various fields. Its objectives also include the development of local, national and international partnerships as well as the strengthening of links with a non-academic public.
