The ENABLER Network aims at improving co-operation among national activities established by national authorities for providing LRs for their languages.

The action aims at:

  • establishing a regular exchange of information;
  • identifying and fostering possible synergies and co-operation;
  • promoting the compatibility and interoperability of their results, thus facilitating the successful transfer of technologies and tools among languages and the construction of multilingual LRs;
  • increasing the visibility and the strategic impact of those national activities in the field of HLT;
  • contributing to the creation of an overall framework in which the public and private sectors, national efforts and international co-ordination could co-operate in order to answer the IST need for LRs.
