European Language Equality

ELE, in collaboration with its sister project the European Language Grid (ELG), will begin on the 1st January 2021 and aims to aid the development of a strategic research, innovation and deployment agenda to achieve digital language equality in Europe by 2030. ELE and ELG are aligned so that both will run for 18 months culminating with a joint event in June 2022, the META-FORUM 2022. 

The wider consortium comprises five core partners (DCU, DFKI Berlin, Charles University Prague, ILSP Athens,  and the University of the Basque Country, Donostia), Language Technology Expertise from  9 networks, associations and initiatives, 9 companies and 30 research organisations.  Together this consortium of 53 partners from all over Europe will drive the strategic research,innovation and deployment agenda to achieve digital language equality in Europe by 2030. 

A number of consultation events, round tables and  stakeholder meetings are planned during the 18-month project, and will ensure close collaboration with ELG. Research partners will produce updates on the 32 META-NET White Papers, detailing the situation regarding the 77 languages of the project. Each network initiative will produce a report in which they collect, consolidate and present their own vision, and companies will produce various technical deep dives for the different technology areas.
