CELR Collaboration

The National Programme for Estonian Language Technology

The National Programme for Estonian Language Technology, a government supported research funding initiative aimed at developing computational technologies for the Estonian language. All results of the NPELT projects (language resources and software prototypes) are released in public domain. CELR has an obligation to deposit all such resources and tools for preservation and long-term access.


CELR is the official consortium representing Estonia in CLARIN ERIC (Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure of European Research Infrastructure Consortium) - a large-scale pan-European collaborative effort to create, coordinate and make language resources and technology available and readily useable via an integrated and interoperable research infrastructure. 


CELR also cooperates with META-NET, a Network of Excellence dedicated to building the technological foundations of a multilingual European information society. A number of our resources are registered and documented in META-SHARE nodes forming network of harvestable repositories all over the Europe. Maintenance of local META-SHARE register and repository system as node in bigger network gives us more experience and suitable environment for cataloging our LT resources.
