Abstract

Recognising Europe’s exceptional demand and opportunities for multilingual language technologies, 60 leading research centres in 34 European countries joined forces in META-NET, a European Network of Excellence. Working together with numerous additional organisations and experts from a variety of fields, META-NET has developed the Strategic Research Agenda for Multilingual Europe 2020 (SRA) [42] – the complex planning and discussion process took more than two years to complete and involved ca. 200 experts. In this contribution we motivate the SRA, briefly describe the current state of Language Technology, especially Computational Morphology, in Europe and discuss the findings in the overall framework of the plans and strategies as specified in the META-NET Strategic Research Agenda.
