Project description
The FIN-CLARIN research infrastructure (RI) project focuses on developing resources, tools and training to support the national speech collection campaign Donate Speech (https://lahjoitapuhetta.fi/) ensuring its long-term impact on research through collaboration between industry and academia with the Language Bank of Finland (www.kielipankki.fi) as their platform. FIN-CLARIN is an RI for Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH). It is a mature infrastructure with a high-quality service model through its online service centre the Language Bank. The infrastructure integrates common tools and resources for processing language and language-related data. Finland is a member of CLARIN ERIC (www.clarin.eu) and FIN-CLARIN (www.helsinki.fi/finclarin) offers the Language Bank as a national service centre for the SSH field in cooperation with its national RI members and collaborators including all relevant universities, CSC-IT Center for Science and Kotus-the Institute for National Languages.
