MuLiMob — About Multilingualism and Mobility
Funded by the European Commission as part of the IST programme, MuLiMob SSA aims to make the most of Europe’s multilingual and multicultural diversity for the benefit of its mobile users and workers, by making information available on current and potential developments and by identifying research to be done.
MuLiMob is a Specific Support Action within the group of projects arising from the call for applications and services for the mobile user and worker. It gathers 5 SMEs from 4 different countries.
MuLiMob’s vision and ambition is to use the multilingual diversity of Europe as a mobile market amplifier: to show the importance of, and potential applications for, multilingualism in the mobile environment; to consider development methods, technology and business models; as well as lowering the barriers that currently limit deployment in the mobile marketplace and increasing interoperability and openness.
MuLiMob’s main objectives are to enhance the awareness of the wireless community concerning multilingual and multicultural mobile services and applications issues; to stimulate a rapid take up of innovative ideas within the whole mobile value chain, for user- friendly and cost effective multilingual services for mobile users and workers; and to identify the issues and problems that need further research, applications and solutions. It will use the context and the needs of the music industry as a basis for its work.
Results are expected in three main areas: technological advance; identification of marketing and business opportunities; and communication and dissemination to enhance awareness.
