Ms. Efrosini Deligianni joined Future Worlds Center in September 2011, originally as an intern and between March and the summer of 2012 as member of the TeachMDGs project. During her stay as intern, she collaborated with Eleni Michail and Yiannis Laouris in drafting and securing funding for Reinventing democracy (YiA 1.3)


Ms. Efrosini Deligianni has an extensive educational background on theoretical linguistics with a research interest on language change, discourse pragmatics and cognitive-linguistic processing. Her future research aspirations lie with a cognitive neuroscience of language. She was first placed as an intern at the New Media Lab (NML) unit of FWC, which she joined with great enthousiasm since it combines the implementation of New Technologies in Language Learning, a fascinating and pioneering avenue of research, with an ultimate goal of imparting social change. She is currently involved in a Youth in Action (YiA) programme under Subaction 1.3 on Youth Democracy Projects entitled “Using democratic dialogue to reinvent democracy”. She is also a member of the TeachMDGs project team.
