Towards the Primary Platform for
Language Technologies in Europe

First Call for Pilot Projects Published

Within the ELG project, we will run two open calls. The first call was opened on 1 March 2020, projects can be submitted until 30 April 2020. The second call for pilot projects will be opened in September 2020.

The projects should last 9–12 months and can be funded with a budget of up to €200,000. They should contribute resources, services, tools or datasets to the ELG to increase its coverage, or they should develop applications using language resources and technologies available in the ELG. SMEs and research organisations are eligible for project funding. Proposals are to be submitted via the ELG Open Calls Platform.

This is a good opportunity for interested parties to boost their language technologies and to become part of the European Language Grid.

For more information see the call documentation and the Open Calls page on the ELG website.

Call for Evaluators

ELG is looking for external evaluators to evaluate project proposals submitted in the open calls for the pilot projects.

The proposal template is simple and the evaluation procedure is set to be lightweight. Project proposals will be max. 10 pages long, including title page and formalities. We estimate the evaluation of single project to last approx. 1 hour. Evaluators will receive a fee of EUR 40 per one evaluated project. We expect each evaluator to be assigned to 4 – 8 projects for evaluation.

This is a continuous call for evaluators, and it will remain open as long as needed; applicants can select the call (first or second call or both) they would like to evaluate.
