European Language Grid

The main goal of the ELG project is to establish the European Language Grid as the primary platform for Language Technology in Europe.The ELG will develop and deploy a scalable cloud platform, providing, in an easy-to-integrate way, access to hundreds of commercial and non-commercial Language Technologies for all European languages, including running tools and services as well as data sets and resources.It will enable the commercial and non-commercial European LT community to deposit and upload their technologies and data sets into the platform, to deploy them through the grid, and to connect with other resources. The European Language Grid will boost the Multilingual Digital Single Market towards a thriving European Language Technology, creating new jobs, new markets and new opportunities.

Through open calls, up to 20 pilot projects will be financially supported to demonstrate the usefulness of the European Language Grid as a platform and also as a European project and initiative.
