Active lobbying for finance and support

Since its inception, NOTaS has been active as an effective lobby organisation. By combining the powers of its members, the NOTaS has been able to act as a representative of universities and companies in the communication with national and European bodies and governmental institutions.  NOTaS members play an active role in national and European organizations, such as:

  • STEVIN, a Dutch-Flemish program for creating essential pre-requisites for Language and Speech for the Dutch language.
  • ELRA, the European institute for language resources and its evaluation
  • CLARIN-EU, the European initiative to create a research and development infrastructure of language resources and language technologies, for example for the Humanities.
  • CLARIN-NL, the Dutch branch of CLARIN
  • ISO, the International Standards Organisation, for the definition of standards for semantic annotation in language resources
