Dina is delighted to share news about a new step in her partnership with colleagues in Florence. Another landmark day for: Healthy Linguistic Diet (HLD) which is going to be rolled out as a regional strategy in schools in Florence.

‘It is so exciting to see my scientific work making a direct impact on school practice – what was once an idea based on my research findings, now becomes a regional strategy. My only regret is that I will not be there in person to work with my colleagues from INDIRE (the National Institute for Documentation, Innovation and Educational Research, the Italian Ministry of Education’s oldest research organisation) and enjoy one of my favourite cities. Many thanks to colleagues at the EU Commission for introducing us.’
