At the end of December 2015 CLARIN-LT has celebrated their first anniversary of Lithuania joining CLARIN ERIC. To commemorate this event a seminar took place at the Vytautas Magnus University to overview the activities and achievements of CLARIN-LT consortium after Lithuania’s one year of membership in CLARIC ERIC.
