MRU Continuing Cooperation with Research Infrastructure Unit CLARIN-LT

Dec. 23rd, 2021, right before Christmas, Mykolas Romeris University (MRU) signed a renewed CLARIN-LT consortium agreement.

The CLARIN-LT consortium is a member of the European Research Infrastructure CLARIN ERIC. It seeks to contribute to the development and advancement of the social sciences and humanities by providing open access to linguistic resources, tools for their analysis and a space where researchers can share knowledge and research.  It is led by researchers from Vytautas Magnus University (VDU). Other consortium members are KTU, VU, the Baltic Institute of Advanced Technology (BPTI) and Klaipėda University’s Baltic Region Archeology and History Institute. MRU joined in 2020.

Lithuania became a full member of CLARIN ERIC in January of 2015. Soon thereafter VDU, KTU and VU established the CLARIN-LT consortium. In 2020 MRU joined the consortium along with BPTI. In 2021, the Klaipėda University’s Baltic Region Archeology and History Institute became a member. Now CLARIN operates in 26 countries from Europe, the U.S. to southern Africa.

CLARIN-LT helps researchers, lecturers and students from the social sciences and humanities conduct research applying the most modern digital solutions and offering open access to digital sound, video, and text data and a reliable way to store information for newly created resources. The infrastructure is necessary for university studies, online learning and more.
