The faculty members of the MATS have active research programs and are engaged in individual and collective research initiatives and projects. In addition to the research carried out for courses, MRPs and theses, the MATS offers its students a range of research-focused activities (e.g., a translation research summer school). Most of these activities are organized around the Research Group on Translation and Transcultural Contact (RGTTC), which is part of the Centre for Research on Language and Culture Contact (CRLCC).
