In an initiative agreed between Professors Ken Pugh (on behalf of Haskins Laboratory/Yale University), Usha Goswami (University of Cambridge) and Heikki Lyytinen, an initial Kick-Off meeting will be organised between 28.11.-1.12.2010 in Helsinki and Jyväskylä in order to create a network of collaboration to participate in the building of an International Network of Excellence (NoE) to examine the following issues at the highest possible level of existing expertise: Supporting children’s learning of first, second and written language skills among typical and atypical learners using the best possible brain and behavioural intervention research. One further special emphasis will be placed on helping children in the most urgent need, such as those in developing countries who do not have adequate instruction.

The planned steps to be taken are to:

  • organise meetings to identify constellations of experts willing to collaborate to achieve ambitious results in the goals mentioned above
  • support with the best possible means their work, encouraging collaboration at the highest possible level to achieve sustainable results
