On the initiative of the Chair for Translation Studies of the Jagiellonian University in Kraków, Poland and in collaboration with three institutional members of the Consortium for Translation Education Research (CTER): the University of Łódź, Poland, Zurich University of Applied Sciences – ZHAW, Switzerland, and Kiev V. Vynnychenko Central Ukrainian State Pedagogical University, Ukraine, an international research platform was launched under the name of TER: Translator-Education-Research. TER is one of the research platforms established within the Jagiellonian University programme of Priority Research Areas (POB Heritage).

TER activities, scheduled for the years 2022-2023, will involve study visits, library queries, conference attendance, the organisation of conferences, workshops, guest lectures and seminars, as well as the preparation of publications – all with a view to meeting the platform’s major goals, which are:

  • to conduct inter- and interdisciplinary and innovative research in Translation Studies;
  • to expand the research competences of the scholars and students involved in the platform; and
  • to provide them with access to the up-to-date publications and knowledge about new trends in the target area.
