Welcome to the website of the Institute for Multilingualism


In addition to being known as the sunniest town in Finland, Vaasa is known as a genuinely bi- and multilingual environment, where several languages are seen and heard on a daily basis.  Also, the universities in Vaasa hold expert-knowledge within this field.

The Institute for Multilingualism is a joint venture between the University of Vaasa and Åbo Akademi University. It initiates research, furthers education and influences societal debate on multilingualism.
