Results of the Open Call for Pilot Projects #1

It is a great pleasure for us to announce the results of the first ELG open call for pilot projects.

The Open Call #1 was closed on 30 April 2020. In total, 110 project proposals were accepted for evaluation, with applications coming from 29 countries. All proposals were evaluated by three independent experts and by the ELG Pilot Board.

The ELG Pilot Board has selected 10 projects, amounting to a funding sum of EUR 1,363,915 in total. You can find more information on the call as well as the list of selected projects here. The selected projects will now sign the Third Party Agreement and start their execution phase.

All applicants will receive a brief feedback on their project proposal in the next weeks. If the project proposal was not accepted in the first call, a resubmission in the second call is possible. The second ELG open call for pilot projects will be opened in September or October 2020.

Thank you to all applicants for the effort dedicated to the first call and for submitting their project proposals. We appreciate the enormous interest in the European Language Grid and hope for future collaboration with all interested parties. Thank you also to all independent evaluators involved for their work.

Congratulations to all successful applicants – the competition was tough!
