The project aims to define and contribute to the establishment of a collaborative infrastructure which will stimulate, throughout the Union, the creation and reuse of harmonized textual and lexical resources and tools. The infrastructure aimed at will ensure the reuse of existing generic resources for written language, and will contribute to their development where such resources do not exist or are not yet widely available. These activities will be undertaken by an initial group of national language centres working in association with relevant research and industrial actors. A collaborative network will be set in place at the very beginning of the project, and will be progressively enlarged during the life-time of the project. It will rely, in the first instance, on resources the partners already have available as a result of their long-standing participation in lexicon and corpus work. Users, data producers and industrial partners across languages will be widely and actively consulted throughout the duration of the project. Synergies will be established with other relevant European projects and with activities in non-EU countries. The consortium comprises companies, national language centres and research laboratories.
