CLS & Society

Language and the ways in which we use it has a huge impact on society as a whole. That’s why we work together with civil society organisations, businesses and other stakeholders on research and innovation projects. Results of our research include widely accessible datasets and corpora, improved methods for automatic speech recognition, and award-winning e-Learning systems. These and other results are applied in areas as diverse as language teaching, e-government, and health communication.
