Who We Are

Connecting across the whole Europe

What is the most amazing about Europe? Without any doubt, that’s the fact that all the countries have kept their different national identities, mentalities and languages. However, in the places where the divergence is high, it may prove to be difficult to communicate and cooperate.

That is why the ELITR project may do a significant difference.

What Do We Expect?

Savings across Sectors

There will be savings in multiple areas: savings on interpreting, which address the cost savings for private and public sector users of language technology solutions and savings through cross-country comparison.

Discussions that Would Never Happen
