LINEE, a project co-funded by the Sixth Framework Programme of the European Commission and coordinated by the University of Bern, started in 2006 and though the funding ended by November 2010, work related to the project by the academics involved continued until 2015. LINEE involved 9 European universities and around 80 researchers. It addressed linguistic diversity in Europe, namely in four thematic areas: 1) Language, Identity and Culture, 2) Language Policy and Planning, 3) Multilingualism and Education and 4) Language and Economy.

The project aimed to produce coherent, innovative research results by an interdisciplinary approach, integrate knowledge of partner universities, establish a durable, innovative scientific network, reassess traditional research, and raise the visibility of linguistic diversity in Europe as a key issue in European integration.
