The TibArmy team gathered in Paris on November 9th and 10th, 2016 for the kick-off workshop of the project.

Alice Travers, Principal Investigator, as in the wording of the European Research Council (ERC), facilitated the meeting; she explained the main axis of research and presented the “sub-projects” that will be developed collectively.

Each member presented the scope of her/his research and the work s/he will carry during the run of the project. The team discussed the critical issues of data protection, open access and ethics commitments.

The team inaugurated the TibArmy offices in the presence of Rainier Lanselle, Deputy Director of the East Asia Civilisation Research Center (CRCAO – UMR 8155) and colleagues from the CRCAO.

The TibArmy team is hosted by the École Pratique des Hautes Études, in the historical building of the Sorbonne, conveniently located in the Latin Quarter in Paris.
