CLARIN-NL launches the third Call Open Call for project proposals. This call is open to employees of organisations that are participant in CLARIN-NL

CLARIN-NL is open to new participants. If your organisation is not a participant in CLARIN-NL, contact the CLARIN-NL Office immediately to inquire whether your organisation is eligible for becoming a participant in CLARIN-NL.

The total budget for this call is limited to a maximum of € 600,000.

This call is specifically open for proposals targeting resource curation projects or demonstrator projects, or a combination of both.

  1. Literary studies
  2. Communication and media studies (focused on the new media such as texting (sms), chat, blogs, twitter, etc.)
  3. History
  4. Linguistics, in particular
    1. Syntax
    2. Phonology
    3. Semantics
    4. Descriptive linguistics and language documentation
    5. Discourse

Examples of  projects awarded in 2009 and 2010 can be found here.  

The maximum budget per project is 120,000€.

An information session on this call will be organized on August 25th, 2011, in Utrecht.

Tips for submitting:

  • It is strongly recommended to fill out the web form as soon as possible, and attach a preliminary version of the project proposal, to avoid overload on the CLARIN-NL web site close to the submission deadline as much as possible. You can always edit your submission and attach an newer version of your project proposal until the submission dead line.
  • Copy the project summary that is required in the project proposals to the project summary field of the web form.
  • The format of the project proposal must be PDF, and you can only upload a file with extension .pdf or .zip
  • You can upload only one file. So if your submission would (exceptionally) consist of multiple files, zip them and submit the zipped file
  • If possible, submit your final proposal as soon as possible, preferably long before the deadline, because it will avoid overload of the web site.
  • If you encounter problems, report them to the CLARIN-NL office. If the problems are so serious that you cannot upload the proposal using the web form, we allow submission by e-mail as a backup (send it to However, you will have to justify why you submitted by e-mail. Without such justification, a submission by e-mail might be declared formally non-compliant!
