EASTIN-CL
Crosslingual and multimodal Search in a Portal for Support of Assisted Living

EASTIN-CL supports

 the search in a European portal

 for assistive technology products and services

by offering

  • multilingual technology, to interact in native language
  • multimodal technology, to interact in written or spoken mode

The project will support the social participation of disabled and elderly people by providing better access to information on assistive tools and technology. Recent efforts have linked national assistive technology information bases into a European portal called EASTIN (www.eastin.eu).

This portal will be enhanced and made more accessible using language technology:

  • Multilingual technology will allow users to search the data in their native language;
  • Multimodal technology will allow them to access the portal not just in written but also in spoken communication.

Target users currently are mainly professionals, like doctors, physiotherapists, insurances, or manufacturers. EASTIN-CL will make the portal accessible also for end users (like ageing people).

The result will lead to an improved service with higher visibility in Europe for both professionals and end users.

The project is funded by the European Cummunity (ICT-PSP-2009-5-3) under Grant Agreement n° 250432.
