The other participating centres are located at the following universities: Adam Mickiewicz University Poznan, Free University of Brussels, Ghent University, Ruhr-University Bochum, Tilburg University, University College London, University of Antwerp, Utrecht University and VU University Amsterdam.

The aim of LMASRP is to coordinate and stimulate research on the, methodological and epistemological analysis of scientific reasoning processes. See LMASRP for a more details.

The main activity of LMASRP is a workshop series labelled Logic, Reasoning and Rationality. Every year, two 2-day workshops  are organised at Ghent University (one in the Spring, one in the Autumn). Each workshop is devoted to a topic that fits within the aims of the network.  Information about past and upcoming workshops can be found at
