The Marie Curie Initial Training Network - Language, Cognition, and Gender (ITN LCG) investigates European languages from an interdisciplinary perspective to expand current knowledge of how language influences and forms the cognitive representations of women and men. To enhance the scientific understanding of this topic, ITN LCG provides a research programme and a structured training programme for 15 early stage researchers (ESR) and 3 experienced researchers (ER). The interplay of Language, Cognition, and Gender is investigated from cross-language and cross-cultural perspectives by partners from 10 universities of the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom and associated partners from public and private sectors.
