In the second half of September 2022, the ELE 2 project will launch an open call for SRIA Contribution Projects, i.e., projects that are meant to provide meaningful, so far missing, convincing, compelling input for the strategic agenda and roadmap.
These projects should produce, among others, clearly defined and potentially also implemented use cases and best-practice examples of language resource development and language technology implementations in relevant industry sectors and areas of life, including feasibility studies, cost estimates, the validation of KPIs and guidelines for concrete implementations to motivate and facilitate the buy-in and take-up from the funding agencies and implementing parties.
The key selection criterion will be a rigorous assessment of whether the proposed SRIA Contribution Project will be able to contribute in a significant way to the overall success and uptake of the strategic agenda. Also, innovativeness, impact, reasonability and appropriateness of the budget will be evaluated.
There will be 185,000€ allocated for the open call and the financial support will be awarded as a lump sum. Amounts awarded to a single project will be up to 25,000€, the duration of the projects is expected to be in the 2-3 months range.
Research organisations (including but not limited to higher education organisations and independent research organisations), NGOs, incorporated associations and companies will be allowed to apply.
In case you are interested in participating in the open call and getting more information, do not hesitate to get in touch with us.
