The ELE project aims to create the European Language Equality Programme, in the form of a strategic research, innovation, and implementation agenda, as well as a roadmap for achieving full digital language equality in Europe by 2030.
LIBER participates in the ELE project to ensure that the voice of the research library community is heard, as the path towards digital language equality is drawn. This is your chance to participate in shaping Europe’s language equal future.
In this online workshop, you will hear speakers from the ELE project and practitioners working with language technology. They will paint a picture of what the ELE project is trying to achieve and what a future entailing language equality throughout Europe looks like. Participating in this session will also give you the opportunity to share what impact this could have on your institution, its services, collection, and users.
The workshop is designed to achieve two main objectives:
(1) to familiarise you with the work of ELE and map out what digital language equality could look like in the library sector; and
(2) collect your input and hear how digital language equality would affect your institution.
During the session, we require your participation to think through what language equality means for research libraries. This will allow us to report back to the project and build the strategic roadmap to European language equality with your input. This is a unique opportunity to voice the research library perspective and help position research libraries at the forefront of the ELE strategy implementation.
