PPPA – Developing a strategic research, innovation and implementation agenda and a roadmap for achieving full digital language equality in Europe by 2030 – 2020
Funds for: drawing up a sustainable evidence-based strategic research agenda and roadmap setting out actions, processes, tools and actors to achieve full digital language equality of all languages (official or otherwise) used within the Union through the effective use of language technologies

Priorities and funded actions:

Objectives
* To create a research agenda, which will:
– Map relevant stakeholders and initiatives and liaise with them through public consultations and on-going dialogues;
– Map relevant technologies, in particular based on artificial intelligence, assess their impact on the linguistic landscape and then analyse the conditions required to maintain and improve the required knowledge within Europe;
– Identify key research areas and gaps in research that need to be addressed to ensure language technologies can overcome the linguistic divide;
– Define the varying needs for language technologies (not only machine translation) across all the sectors that make up the European Digital Single Market and across languages used within the EU and its partner countries, but especially the lesser-used or under-resourced languages

* To create a roadmap whose implementation will achieve digital language equality by 2030, which will define:
– Tools, processes, actions and actors required to achieve full language equality for all sectors and stakeholders in the EU by 2030;
– A reasoned prioritisation of actions to be taken, with clear milestones and accountabilities, to ensure the roadmap can be followed successfully and completed on time;
– Key performance indicators for measuring progress/success in the implementation of the roadmap produced by the project;
– How to ensure the knowledge and skills for implementing the roadmap remain within the Union to foster the EU’s technological sovereignty in this critical area;
– A cost analysis of the funding requirements needed to ensure the roadmap can be successfully followed;
– The necessary stakeholders and actors that need to be involved to ensure that by 2030 no European languages remain at risk of digital extinction
