Programme coordinator, within the programme Trans-Himalayan database development: China and the Subcontinent, sponsored by CASS and KNAW

The project's main goal is to combine the database of cognate words of Tibeto-Burman languages, maintained by the Institue of Ethnology and Anthropology (IEA) of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences since 1998 (http://iea.cass.cn/stdpi), with language data of Professor van Driem's Himalayan Languages Project in order to create a joint, online database of Tibeto-Burman languages with a mirror-site in Leiden. The second goal of the project is to continue documentation of endangered Tibeto-Burman languages in China in cooperation with the IEA.
