kombiThe Coordination Office for Multilingualism and Language Education (KoMBi) coordinates eight research projects which investigate aspects of multilingualism and language education. The projects are located decentrally at different German Universities. The projects are funded by the German Ministry of Education and Science. KoMBi facilitates the internal knowledge exchange, establish contacts to thematically-related national and international research projects, carries out public relations work and facilitates the dissemination of results in educational science, policy and practice. Furthermore we arrange qualification measures for junior researchers and assist in the establishment of a sustainable data management strategy. The coordination office is headed by Ingrid Gogolin.



lima logoThe LiMA Research Cluster brought together existing top-level expertise in multilingualism (linguistics, education sciences, urban sociology) at the University of Hamburg. The cluster focused this expertise on the investigation of migration-induced multilingualism as found in urban centers worldwide. It investigated whether and in what way migration-induced multilingualism can be translated into advantages for individuals and society and into benefits for the cultural and economic development of urban centers. The city of Hamburg serves as a model for an international comparison of similar urban centers. Funding for the LiMA Research Cluster has ceased by the end of 2013 however the network and collaborations continue in follow-up projects.



lamaThe LiMA Lama stands for a website which is specifically dedicated to the multilingual praxis, i.e. teachers, parents, students etc. It provides tips and recommendations how to use multilingualism as a resource in the everyday life. It shows multilingual occurances in urban centres like Hamburg in various media (videos, books, apps, games etc.) It also answers questions to parents or teachers on how to improve the multilingual competences of their children/ students. Behind the LiMA Lama are the scientists of the LiMA research cluster, so all recommendations are scientifically based.




herkunftA research project on the relation of heritage (Herkunft) and educational attainment (Bildungserfolg). The research question is why different migrant groups have different educational attainment. What fosters the child's educational attainment? What experiences do parents have with their children and with schools? What can parents of different cultural backgrounds learn from one another? The research project strives to fill these knowledge gaps.
