Fàilte gu Soillse – Lìonradh Nàiseanta Rannsachaidh airson Glèidheadh agus Ath-bheothachadh na Gàidhlig.

Is e com-pàirteachas rannsachaidh a tha ann an Soillse a tha a’ toirt còmhla Oilthigh na Gàidhealtachd is nan Eilean, Oilthigh Obar Dheathain, Oilthigh Ghlaschu is Oilthigh Dhùn Èideann. Chaidh Soillse a stèidheachadh air sàilleabh gu bheil goireasan rannsachaidh a dhìth aig ìre ro-innleachd a tha comasach air fianais, dearbhadh agus tuigse fhreagarrach a thoirt do phoileasaidhean poblach a tha/bhitheas air an dealbhachadh airson ath-nuadhachadh a thoirt air cor na Gàidhlig ann an Alba san latha an-diugh agus san àm ri teachd.

Tha amasan dùbhlanach aig Soillse ri choileanadh agus feumaidh na com-pàirtichean acadaimigeach agus na buidhnean poblach eile obrachadh còmhla airson toraidhean a’ phròiseict a thoirt gu buil.


Soillse – the National Research Network for the Maintenance and Revitalisation of Gaelic Language and Culture

Soillse is a research collaboration between the University of the Highlands and Islands, Aberdeen University, Edinburgh University and the University of Glasgow, and has been established to provide a much enhanced research capacity to inform public policy towards the maintenance and revitalisation of Gaelic language and culture.

The challenging objectives that have been set for Soillse to produce world-class research outputs can only be achieved if full cooperation exists between all of the partners that are participating in the project. A central research objective of Soillse is to develop a meaningful partnership with the Gaelic communities of Scotland and elsewhere.
