The Pädagogische Fakultät der COMENIUS UNIVERSITÄT (Pedagogical Department of the COMENIUS UNIVERSITY) in Bratislava has participated over the last several years in several pilot projects which surpassed the typical university parameters, and therefore, it is qualified well beyond its intended role to address the scientific questions of the project. In addition, it has a Scandinavian Language Department and as well as a Finno-Hungarian Languages Department so that here there are also possible connections. In this project, the pedagogical department will have the task of conducting the external evaluation.
