CLARIN-NL kick-off meeting
On May 27, humanities researchers and technical specialists from the Netherlands gathered in Utrecht to give the green light to the CLARIN-NL project. As the national counterpart of the European CLARIN project, CLARIN-NL aims to make the vast amount of existing linguistic data and software on the internet available to a broad community of scholars.
The focus will be on the creation of user-friendly ways to find and access linguistic data on the internet. CLARIN will build easy to use interfaces to enable scholars without technical expertise to take advantage of these impressive resource and tool collections that are currently spread over multiple institutions – with just a few mouse clicks.
Grant of 9 million euro
The Dutch government will provide CLARIN-NL with a budget of 9 million euro for the period of 2009-2014. Twenty-four project partners, including the MPI for Psycholinguistics, will contribute to this multidisciplinary endeavour. The meeting in Utrecht will provide details on a call for proposals for demonstrator and resource curation projects.
