The Centre for Internationalisation and Parallel Language Use (CIP) was established in April 2008 following a decision by the Board of the University of Copenhagen. The Centre is cooperating with the Department of English, Germanic and Romance Studies and the Department of Scandinavian Studies and Linguistics. Administratively, the Centre is placed within the Faculty of Humanities, under the Associate Dean for Education.
CIP is initially funded by a grant from the University Board, which is effective until 2013. From Januar 2013 CIP has been funded through a permanent rectoral concession. The concession covers cost for administration and research. Beyond this, the centre will be funded by revenues from its language courses and other services.
A committee of representatives from the two Departments mentioned above serves as the directors advisors in matters pertaining to the Centre's research profile. Furthermore, a steering committee formed by the associate dean, the directors of the Departments as well as the director of CIP is responsible for the overall management of the centre.
As of 1 July 2016 Anne Holmen is appointed as daily leader of TEACH, the teaching centre for Humanities. Read more about TEACH here.
