Call for Proposals for ARTIS Collaboration in Research Training

The ARTIS (Advancing Research in Translation and Interpreting Studies) initiative offers training designed to help researchers in the field to improve their research skills and methods, to set up and manage research projects effectively, and to negotiate and apply theoretical models.
Building on the long and successful history of the Translation Research Summer School (run by the University of Manchester, University College London, the University of Edinburgh and Hong Kong Baptist University), ARTIS has been conceived as a flexible platform to collaborate with institutions worldwide in the delivery of short, research intensive training in a variety of places, responding to local needs.
Institutions interested in hosting an ARTIS event are now invited to apply by
31 July 2015.
Full information on the application process, application assessment criteria (including the application form) and deadlines for subsequent application rounds is available at:
