Founded in the 1980s, GREIP (Research Centre for Plurilingual Teaching & Interaction) has a nucleus of expert researchers in the area of plurilingual interactions in education contexts. With its 30 years of experience, the team has become a point of reference worldwide in regard to innovation in language education. Although always maintaining a coherent, solid focus in our research, GREIP is sufficiently flexible to meld numerous fruitful alliances, both locally and internationally, with individuals and other entities and research teams in primary and secondary schools, at higher education, and in non-formal educational settings. These partnerships have contributed to the vast knowledge of the GREIP team in many different areas of research in plurilingual education and imbued our team with a passion to continue collaborative, ethnographic sociolinguistic studies, to contribute to theory-building and teaching innovation, and to advance knowledge and practices for inclusive plurilingual didactics (see areas of research).
We work in close collaboration with several experts across the globe and seek to advance knowledge about education in the 21st century. We work closely with major stakeholders such as primary and secondary educators, administrators and policy-makers. We have been recognized as a consolidated quality research group by the Catalan Government since 2005.
