The majority of operations, services and centres of the CLARIN infrastructure is provided and funded by CLARIN members, as well as and observers. Members and observers can be countries or intergovernmental organisations. They set up a national consortium, typically consisting of universities, research institutions, libraries and public archives, of which at least one has the status of CLARIN centre (see overview of CLARIN centres). All members and observers create and provide access to digital language data collections, digital tools and expertise.
In cases where CLARIN ERIC deems it beneficial, it may enter into agreement with third parties, such as individual institutions, regions and countries outside the EU. Third parties contribute to CLARIN ERIC by providing expertise, services, language resources and/or technology.
All consortia and third parties adhere to the same criteria for data and services interoperability, access conditions, quality of data and services. Interoperability is ensured through the standards adopted in the CLARIN framework. The access to data and content is in principle sustainable and in accordance with the principles of open science. Members and observers have a large degree of freedom to decide what they contribute to the CLARIN infrastructure.
Below you will find the list of current CLARIN ERIC members, observers and third parties, with the links to their national consortia. The national coordinators meet regularly in the National Coordinators' Forum. Each member country is also represented by a delegate in the General Assembly of CLARIN ERIC.
If you would like to get in touch with a national consortia, please contact the relevant National Coordinator.
