Several people contributed to the conception, realization, and administration of this project:
Constantine Gavroglou and Dimitris Afentoulis (Latsis foundation) made substantial suggestions to the contents of our project application.
Concha Höfler (Viadrina University of Frankfurt) shared with us her ideas on the text elicitation and cooperated with Violeta Moisieva during her own field trip in Tbilisi.
Julia Ritz (University of Potsdam), Christian Chiarchos (University of Potsdam), and Maik Stührenberg (University of Bielefeld) cooperated with us for the development of the database of the project.

The website was developed and realized by Xenofon V. Gogouvitis. Communications agency MSCOMM designed the logo and acted as a creative consultant for the design of the website.
