ESTeam was pleased to host the LISE EMB/TMB meetings in its offices in Berlin. On 2nd and 3rd February LISE consortium members from University Vienna, EURAC, the European Union, crosslang, and ESTeam met to review the first 12 months of the project and to plan the next steps and deliverables.
Project coordinator Tanja Wissik started with a status assessment. We particularly tried to identify items that require clarification before the first official project review meeting end of March with the EU project officer. We then listed and discussed upcoming marketing and dissemination activities, concretely the attendance of LISE partners at the IRIS 2012 conference end of February in Salzburg, the LREC in Istanbul and the TKE in Madrid. The last session of the first day was dedicated to the LISE business plan, where I’ve reported on ESTeam’s in-depth research on the terminology market landscape and how LISE could see commercial success.
On the second day Elena Chiocchetti from EURAC reported on their user research progress and about the outcome of interviews with terminology managers in administrations – the survey is still running and also available online. Then we’ve dedicated a lot of time to demonstrate the already fully functional LISE collaboration portal, developed by ESTeam. It was very encouraging to see that the user needs as identified by EURAC matches very well with what has been implemented in the portal. A fascinating project!
