Information and Communication Technologies theme under the 7 th Framework Programme (FP7 ICT)
The FP7 ICT Framework Programme is updated every two years and defines the priorities for the calls for proposals to be launched. The 2013 Work Programme acknowledges that digital content remains the material basis for a multilingual knowledge based society. However the explosive growth of digital content (both structured and unstructured) makes it important for European citizens and organisations to learn to manage it effectively and to extract from it maximum value in terms of private or public, personal or organisational decision making, planning and management.
Challenge 4: Technologies for Digital Content and Languages
Challenge 4 focuses on:
- exploring and testing new approaches, methods and techniques to extract, interpret and exploit information from unstructured multilingual and/or media sources, yielding actionable knowledge;
- developing and testing in realistic operating conditions new algorithms and software frameworks to analyse, interact and visualize extremely large volumes of data in real time;
- supporting Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) developing innovative applications in structured and unstructured digital content management and, particularly, in the reuse of open data.
There are three objectives in Challenge 4, two of which are relevant to the language technology aspects - Objective 4.1 and 4.3:
