WELCOME TO THE ATHEME WEBSITE!

AThEME is a 5-year collaborative research project (2014 – 2019) studying multilingualism in Europe. Researchers from 17 partner institutions across 8 European countries are (1) investigating cognitive, linguistic and sociological issues in multilingual Europe, (2) assessing existing public policies and practices within the areas of education and health and (3) contributing to evidence-based policy making. The project aims to raise awareness of multilingualism among policy makers, health professionals, academics and educators.
