The ESFRI-project Common Language Resources and Technology Infrastructure (CLARIN) is a large-scale pan-European collaborative effort to create, coordinate and make language resources and technology available and readily useable. The envisaged research in frastructure will act as an eScience mediator offering web services for cataloguing, searching, filtering, processing, reformatting, and visualizing language information in many ways. The present proposal calls for a national supporting action under the n ame of NO-CLARIN, with the goal to strengthen Norwegian participation in the current preparatory phase of the CLARIN project, in order to promote Norwegian participation in the construction and exploitation phase of CLARIN starting after 2010. NO-CLARIN w ill provide means that allow Norwegian participation in current CLARIN activities, provide a forum for Norwegian language-related research infrastructure that can be related to CLARIN, investigate the possibilities of establishing infrastructure centers c onnected to the CLARIN grid, lay the foundation for a project application and disseminate information on infrastructure status, plans and opportunities to relevant audiences.
