Prof. Andy Way, Deputy Director, ADAPT Centre and DCU's School of Computing will lead the "Providing Resources in Irish, Norwegian, Croatian and Icelandic for the Purposes of Language Engineering" which will involve collaborating with Iconic, the National Library of Norway, the University of Zagreb, and the University of Iceland.

The grant was awarded under the recent Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) call as part of the ELRC Network (European Language Resource Co-ordination) which manages, maintains and coordinates the relevant language resources in all official languages of the EU and CEF associated countries.
