Action requested today! Sign the open letter to the EC

By: GALA Team, Information

Dear Colleague,

Your action is requested by end of day! Please sign the open letter to the European Commission saying that language must be a part of their strategic priorities.

We would like to ask you to support and circulate an Open Letter to the EC, requesting that they address the multilingual challenge in their forthcoming Strategy on the Digital Single Market (DSM).

The open letter is a response from the community of researchers, companies, and users of all kinds of language technologies to the EC. Unfortunately, there is a real danger that multilinguality will disappear from the EC's priorities. It is not yet a part of the strategic priorities of EC Vice President Andrus Ansip. (Language has already been removed from the Horizon 2020 Work Programme for 2016/2017.)

Vice President Ansip will discuss the DSM priorities on Wednesday, 25 March, with the College of Commissioners. Your action is requested immediately.

The letter is online for signing at http://multilingualeurope.eu

Thank you for your support,
