The Faculdade de Ciências Sociais e Humanas – NOVA FCSH (FCSH) of Universidade NOVA de Lisboa (UNL) is the largest Portuguese institution of higher education in the fields of social sciences and the humanities. Its mission is to provide a high quality public service in tertiary education and research in the fields of social and human sciences, thereby raising national and foreign citizens’ qualifications and producing scientifically and socially relevant knowledge.
FCSH’s research policy stresses interdisciplinarity – both among the social sciences and between these and other scientific fields – and cooperation – both within the institution and with external institutions.
The CLUNL-Centro de Linguística da Universidade NOVA de Lisboa (CLUNL) is a research unit that aims to promote researching in theoretical and applied linguistics, as well as the advanced training of researchers and publication of scientific data in those domains concerned with the nature and structure of languages and texts.
Hence, we’re pleased to have FCSH-UNL / CLUNL as #elexispartners with expertise in standardisation, which will collaborate together on standards with other partners, both on the lexicographic and NLP side. FCSH-UNL is directly involved in International Standards Organisations (TC37 family of standards) and will contribute its expertise in the process of defining common data models for lexicographic resources collected within the consortium.
