The European Commission is preparing for the launch of the ‘Language Data Space’, a platform and a marketplace where the request for language resources and services will match the offer.
This DIGITAL Programme initiative, presented at the 6th ELRC conference, will give stakeholders the opportunity to monetise their efforts in terms of language resources (data, tools, services, models, etc.), while also supporting the deployment of large language models and AI language technology services for their businesses, in one single marketplace. This will create an interconnected and competitive European data economy for the valorisation and re-use of language resources.
To further promote the ‘Language Data Space’ and collect valuable insights, the European Commission is also organising a series of online workshops. They will target key stakeholders’ groups, giving them the chance to learn more about the ‘Language Data Space’ and share ideas and inputs on how to improve it.
Here are the dates of the workshops that have been confirmed so far:
