The Zurich Center for Linguistics (LiZZ) is a group of institutes and individuals who are involved in linguistic research in Zurich and who share common interests and resources.
The LiZZ supports the development of the linguistically oriented institutes and initiatives of the University of Zurich (UZH). Our central goal is to strengthen linguistics in Zurich and to generally foster the public perception of the impact and value of language science.

If you would like to participate actively in the development of linguistics within LiZZ, we would be happy to count you in as a LiZZ member. More details on the registration for the LiZZ membership can be found here. We are especially interested in a lively exchange with PhD students and welcome all initiatives and participations from early career researchers who work in the field of linguistics and language science.
The Faculty of Arts supports LiZZ with an annual sum, which is mainly used for covering running expenses (coordination units). In addition, LiZZ is financed through overhead contributions from third-party funds as well as through the income from outreach activities such as the further education programs "Zur Sprache" and "Sprachliche Inklusion".
