In 2009, after Philosophy was selected as a profile area at Stockholm University, the depart­ment was given some extra funding. One result of this was that the department started a new center, CLLAM, the Centre for Logic Language and Mind. The purpose of CLLAM is to further research and international cooperation in the areas of Logic, Philosophy of Language, and Philosophy of Mind. One aim is that the Centre itself will be partner in international networks and participate in network projects within these research areas. The Centre will also organize conferences, support network activities for associated researchers and PhD students, and, if it has the resources, finance research in these areas. The Centre is a partner of PLM, Philosophy of Language and Mind, a philosophical network of centres, departments and institutes in Paris, Barcelona, London, St Andrews, Aberdeen, Budapest, Oslo and Amster­dam. Every two years PLM will organize a conference in the philosophy of language and philosophy mind area (where the first one is organized by Stockholm University, September 2011). Following an evaluation by the division board of the faculty of Humanities, CLLAM’s status as a recognized centre at Stockholm University was renewed in 2014.

In 2011 a group of researchers at the Centre (Häggqvist, Pagin and Wikforss) received an ESF grant for an international Collaborative Research Project (CRP), ‘Communication in Context’, within the Eurocores program Eurounderstanding. The CRP has research groups in Amsterdam, Lisbon, London, Osnabrück, Tartu, Trondheim, and Tuebingen. Wikforss is pro­ject leader for the whole CRP, and in 2012 Glüer and Åkerman were added to the project. Recently the final conference for the whole Eurounderstanding program was held in Lisbon, and in the final evaluation the project was given a very strong evaluation.

The Centre also participates in PETAF, (Perspectival Thoughts and Facts), a network pro­ject in the ITN program, under the Marie Curie program, within EU Framework 7, led by Sven Rosenkranz, University of Barcelona. The project funds graduate students (at Stockholm, Ivan Kasa) and organizes regular workshops and conferences. Pagin, Glüer, Häggqvist, Westerståhl and Wikforss participate in the project and Pagin is a member of the supervisory board.

In addition, members at the department participate in a number of individual and collaborative projects, many of which involve international networks.
