Humanistiska och teologiska fakulteterna | Lunds universitet

Hosting and funding

RWAAI is hosted by the Centre for Languages and Literature, and the Humanities Lab at the Faculty of Humanities and Theology, Lund University. It was established with generous funding from a Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences (Riksbankens Jubileumsfond) Infrastructure Grant (2012-2015) and is currently funded by a second Infrastructure Grant (2018-2021). RWAAI builds on a long-standing and unparalleled collaborative research program spanning four decades of research into the Austroasiatic language family at the former Department of Linguistics and Phonetics, now part of the Centre for Languages and Literature.


The Humanities Lab hosts the RWAAI corpus server, and provides general technical infrastructure support and expertise. As a member of SWE-CLARIN, part of of the European Digital Humanities Common Language and Resource Initiative (CLARIN), Lund University is committed to integrated and interoperable research infrastructure of language resources and technology ensuring persistence, accessibility and extension across archives to enable future possibilities in the evolving field of eHumanities research.


The Malmö Academy of Music contributes technical equipment and expertise to the project.


The Language Archive, MPI, Nijmegen and the Max-Planck Society provide the necessary software for archiving access and management tools, as well as expertise.
