Guiding Language Technology Paths from Research to Markets
Start date: Nov 1, 2011,
End date: Feb 28, 2014
COMPASS is a Support Action for the Language Technology European research community and industry, that aims to:1.Promote faster, wider and smoother market take-up of Language Technology (LT) research results by facilitating closer collaboration between research and industry players, and by generating better knowledge and understanding of demand/user needs and expectations2.Foster the process of consolidation of LT stakeholders as a self-sustainable and innovative global industry, strategically co-ordinated under a common vision and approach to consumers' needs, and acting upon a shared innovation agenda for the continuous improvement of their technological base.To achieve these objectives, the COMPASS consortium will implement a Support Mechanism structured by two pillars: an LT Innovation Forum to mobilise and coordinate LT stakeholders, and an LT Market Observatory to provide information and insights for better innovation decision-making. These core actions will be complemented by a comprehensive programme of Dissemination and Exploitation of project outputs.Impacts derived from a successful completion of LT COMPASS will be measurable in a number of ways, e.g.: partnerships between research centres and commercial developers/vendors, deployment of LT-enabled products and services, wider awareness and recognition of the current and future potential of LT.
