The CLARIN Café is an informal and interactive space where researchers, lecturers and students can meet. The first sessions will be organized by the CLARIN Ambassadors.

Francesca Frontini (Université Paul-Valéry in Montpellier), Maciej Maryl (Polish Academy of Sciences), and Toine Pieters (Utrecht University) will be holding discussions with other experts in the CLARIN community on the topics that we are all thinking about these days, such as:

  • how can CLARIN best support researchers who are collecting Covid-19 related datasets
  • how to conduct fruitful virtual academic conferences and workshops for CLARIN communities
  • how to use CLARIN resources and tools in (virtual) teaching, and
  • how beginners from various SSH disciplines with no previous DH experience can incorporate CLARIN resources and tools into their research projects.


Topics and dates

Schedules of topics and dates will be published in the CLARIN news section, CLARIN Newsflash and Twitter. This CLARIN Café page will always provide the latest details.
