IMPACT event: Project Outcomes

Category:

 

We would like to invite you to attend the IMPACT event "Project Outcomes" on 26 June 2012, which will take place at the KB National Library of the Netherlands in The Hague. At this event, the IMPACT project outcomes will be presented by IMPACT staff, along with results of several pilots that have been conducted with some of the tools at IMPACT libraries in early 2012.

The IMPACT project (January 2008 - June 2012) is a European research project focused on innovating OCR software and language technology to improve the digitisation of historical printed text. IMPACT is led by the KB National Library of the Netherlands. Our group of partners includes several major European national libraries, universities, research centres and two private sector companies (ABBYY and IBM Haifa). IMPACT recently launched the IMPACT Centre of Competence, a productive network of experts in digitisation that will build on the research and development of partners from the IMPACT project and continue to improve access to text.
