UU is a globally leading research university in the Netherlands with a budget of 761 MEU (2013). The university has a very strong humanities presence and offers the widest range of English-taught graduate programmes in the Netherlands.
UU will participate in this project through a collaboration between the faculty of Humanities with the Utrecht Institute of Linguistics (Uil-OTS) and the Faculty of Geoscience through the Urban and Regional research center Utrecht (URU). The former unites roughly 70 permanent researchers and 50 temporary researchers and it has a long tradition in Language Technology research and in the analysis of language in communicative contexts. The latter includes research activities on: Urban development and individual behaviour, ICT and travel patterns, Healthy Urban Living, Housing and social cohesion, GIS-modelling.
The research at UiLOTS is supported by excellent lab facilities, including an EEG/ERP lab, a baby lab, eye-trackers, and access to fMRI. URU has a GIS-lab.
