Project "Variablity in Speech Production and Perception"

Proceedings of the international Paris-Cologne seminar on Variability in Speech Production and Perception

Our project has put together virtual conference papers which document the outcome of the transnational seminar between Cologne (Universität zu Köln, IfL Phonetics) and Paris (Université de Paris): "Proceedings of the international Paris-Cologne seminar on Variability in Speech Production and Perception". In international groups, the experiments themselves were planned and possible outcomes were derived based on research literature and hypotheses; however, they were not carried out in the real world of experimental linguistics – not yet.

Project "Science Communication Workshops"

On December 4-5, 2020, students participating in this project presented their work at this interdisciplinary conference. 

The 14th Winter Meeting of the International Consortium for Interdisciplinary Education about Health and the Environment is the result of a visionary idea conceived and spearheaded by Prof. Dr. Klaus Klein, now retired Professor of Biology and Didactics at the University of Cologne, to bring together the fields of education, environmental sciences, and public health. Since its inception, this conference has engaged more than one-hundred scientists from six continents as well as nearly a thousand students and other young scholars from throughout the hemispheres to bring diversity to scientific areas, while unifying an interdisciplinary commitment to abandon archaic and siloed towers of thought. This year’s theme – Health, Environment, and Education in Challenging Times – continued the time-honored tradition of international exchange and collaboration.
