It seeks to build an infrastructure for language resources and technology in support of scholars in the Humanities and Social Sciences.
The main objective of ILC4CLARIN is to ensure that researchers in Italy have access to European CLARIN-compatible language resources and that Italian resources are accessible to researchers in other countries.
ILC4CLARIN will assist scholars in:
- documenting resources using correct metadata descriptions;
- sharing resources with clear access policies.
ILC4CLARIN is developing strategies for the documentation of language resources produced in Italy, with a special focus on the languages spoken in Italy and classical languages such as Ancient Greek and Latin.
On 18 April 2018 the Trusted Digital Repository ‘The ILC4CLARIN Centre at the Institute for Computational Linguistics’ acquired the 2016 Core Trust Seal.
Set up as between the end of 2015 and the beginning of 2016 as a CLARIN Metadata Providing Centre (of Type C), on 3 May 2018 ILC4CLARIN was officially recognized as a CLARIN Service Providing Centre (of Type B) able to offer the most advanced services thanks to the long standing expertise of the host institute in this sector.
