The representatives of the KIT network on language technology education and the Graduate School of Language Technology in Finland had a meeting today at University of Helsinki. The education in the area of language technology is increasingly networked. Several universities provide courses that the students from other universities may participate.
Recently, much thanks to the active role of Prof. Kimmo Koskenniemi and Robin Cooper, there are new developments in the Nordic and Baltic level. NGLST, Nordic Graduate School of Language Technology is a collaboration between leading centres of research and teaching in language technology in the Nordic countries, with funding from NordForsk. Prof. Koskenniemi has also been active in the establishment of the Northern European Association for Language Technology (NEALT).
