Language Technologies

The Information and Communication Technologies Policy Support Programme (ICT-PSP)

The ICT Policy Support programme (ICT-PSP) is one of the three specific programmes of the CIP Framework Programme. The ICT-PSP has as its objectives:

  • Development of the Single European Information Space and strengthening of the market for ICT products and services and ICT-based products and services;
  • Stimulation of innovation through the wider adoption of and investment in ICT;
  • Development of an inclusive information society and more efficient and effective services in areas of public interest, and improvement of quality of life.

The ICT-PSP work programme is updated every year and defines the priotities for the calls for proposals which will be launched.

Theme 6: Multilingual Web , of the ICT-PSP Work Programme aims to stimulate ICT-based multilingual communication, collaboration and participation. By doing so it will contribute to the creation of a pan-European digital single market. Businesses, administrations and communities increasingly go online, crossing national borders and language communities. The successful deployment of cross border platforms and services depends on how effectively language barriers are overcome. Support in this respect must therefore be based on sound business models, people and their skills and optimum use of processes and technologies.

There are two objectives:

  • Objective 6.1: Open linguistic infrastructure (providing reusable building blocks)
  • Objective 6.2 Multilingual online services (demonstrating potential and impact)

Full descriptions of the Theme and Objectives can be downloaded below.
