The Centre for Lifelong Learning and Individualised Cognition (CLIC) is a collaboration between the University of Cambridge and the Nanyang Technological University, Singapore (NTU Singapore), and is funded by Singapore’s National Research Foundation. The new research centre, focused on improving support for lifelong learning and cognitive agility, opened on 1 October 2020 in Singapore.
Henriette is Professor of Language Acquisition and Cognition, Faculty of Modern and Medieval Languages, Theoretical and Applied Linguistics and Vice-President of Lucy Cavendish College, University of Cambridge. She is one of the Cambridge PIs on the project, co-leading the work package which aims to understand the role of social factors in promoting cognitive flexibility. Her specific interests are in the role that language and multilingualism might play. She will be working closely with her co-leads in Singapore, the other Cambridge PIs on the project, and her colleagues in the section of Theoretical and Applied Linguistics in MMLL.
