The European Commission, DG XIII, has published an activity report for the Language Engineering sector of the Telematics Applications programme during the period 1994-1995. The Language Engineering sector launched three calls for proposals between December 1994 and September 1995. From these calls, 32 shared-cost projects and six accompanying measures were selected for funding. The Community contribution to these is some ECU 50 million, with a total investment of ECU 80 million. These projects bring together about 370 organizations.
