On July 3rd, the Délégation générale à la langue française et aux langues de France organized the 2018 Language and Digital Presentation at La Villette in Paris.
The purpose of this event was to make a public presentation of the various projects funded by the Languages and Digital 2016 and 2017 calls for projects, which had supported 40 initiatives in the field of language technologies, including online databases, automated language processing, websites and mobile applications, designed to promote the French language, the languages of France and multilingualism in general.
ELDA took part in the panel entitled "R&D: Digital tools for the languages" and gave insights on the Inventory of Linguistic Resources of French Languages (French and the regional languages spoken in France) carried out in 2012-2013 and updated in 2017-2018 with a focus on studying the current conditions for sharing these resources and negotiating the rights to make them available to the LT community for R&D purposes.
