The majority of operations, services and centres of the CLARIN infrastructure is provided and funded by CLARIN ERIC members (and observers). Members and observers can be countries or intergovernmental organizations. 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). The contribution expected from members and observers is to create and provide access to digital language data collections, and digital tools and expertise for researchers to work with them.
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.
The same criteria for data and services interoperability, access conditions, quality of data and services are adhered to by all consortia and third parties. Interoperability is ensured through the standards adopted in the CLARIN framework. The access provided 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 URLs of their national consortia (if available). 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.
