The Centre for Research and Enterprise in Language (CREL) at the University of Greenwich is a cross-disciplinary space for cutting-edge research in language education and language teaching.

The mission of the Centre for Research and Enterprise in Language (CREL) is to foster a multidisciplinary environment for the research about language. The purpose of the centre is to bring scholars from the areas of linguistics, applied linguistics, translation, psychology, speech therapy, computing, education and sociology together for collaboration. CREL is the home to courses and activities that are of interest to those studying different aspects of language, its acquisition and development or its teaching. The centre promotes the production of high-quality research, the participation of practitioners and the collaboration with the industry.

The centre conducts activities of three sorts: substantive research, outreach and enterprise.

1.  Substantive research on different aspects related to language, its acquisition and teaching. The members publish articles and books in highly ranked scientific journals and publishing companies.

2. Outreach. The team leads activities in different institutions (e.g., schools) making the analysis of language and its teaching known to the wider social community.

3. Enterprise. The centre runs activities that maintain the sustainability of our research, such as the English language pre-sessional courses.

Centre for Research and Enterprise in Language (CREL) is part of the Faculty of Architecture, Computing & Humanities, University of Greenwich.
