Tour de CLARIN

Tour de CLARIN is a CLARIN ERIC initiative that showcases the richness of the CLARIN landscape and displays the full range of activities throughout the network. Tour de CLARIN highlights prominent user involvement activities of different CLARIN national consortiums, shines the spotlight on individual Knowledge Centres (K-centres) and Service Providing Centres (B-centres), and introduces the various committees that are integral to CLARIN’s mission. Contributions include case studies that consortiums are particularly proud of, relevant user involvement activities, recently developed tools, and interviews with prominent researchers who are using a national consortium’s infrastructure. The content is disseminated via the CLARIN Newsflashblog posts and Twitter. Each year, the contributions are collated in a printed volume.
