Results of Open Call for Pilot Projects #2

We are happy to publish the results of the second Open Call for pilot projects. The Open Call #2 was closed on 30 November 2020. In total, 103 project proposals were accepted for evaluation, with applications coming from 28 countries. All proposals were evaluated by three independent experts and by the ELG Pilot Board. The Pilot Board has selected five projects, amounting for a funding of EUR 584,396 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 Agreements and start their execution phases.

All applicants will receive a brief feedback on their project proposal in the upcoming weeks. The second open call was also the last one funded during the runtime of the ELG project.

Thank you to everyone who submitted a proposal for their efforts dedicated. Even if not selected, we highly appreciate the enormous interest in the European Language Grid and hope to collaborate with all interested parties in the future. Many thanks also to all independent evaluators involved for their work.

And last but not least: Congratulations to the five successful applicants – the competition again was very tough! For more information on the ELG open calls, don’t hesitate to contact us at
