CIPL’s old website was created over twenty years ago and was hosted in the USA by Ehost.
At the time, this was a major step forward in the functioning of CIPL, but in the past few years the old site turned out to be quite impractical. Apart from that, a new technology would involve a new type of website to which the newsletter can also be linked.
CIPL is bound to the Netherlands for historical and financial reasons, so it seemed best to us to host the website at the Dutch Language Institute, where CIPL also has it seat. Here we can rely not only on a robust IT infrastructure but also on a professional webmaster. Moreover, the CIPL secretarial department, run by Karin van Weerlee, can add texts directly to the website and is able to deal with all data in a flexible way.
The website offers a lot of space for news items. Newsletters are easier to find and anybody can subscribe to our newsletter with one click of the mouse. The travel grants have also been given a more prominent place on the site.
We hope you will take the time to visit the new site. Any remarks and suggestions are of course very welcome!
