CLARINO is the Norwegian infrastructure for language resources and technologies. CLARINO is operating the Norwegian part of the pan-European CLARIN ERIC infrastructure, which Norway joined since October 1, 2015, after having been an observer since February 1, 2013.

The aim is to make existing and future language resources easily accessible for researchers and to bring eScience to humanities disciplines. Any researcher can, through federated authentication, gain access to a vast body of language resources, including e.g. speech recordings, literary and historic archives, linguistic corpora, etc. In addition, CLARINO offers services for depositing, managing, citing, searching and processing language data.

CLARINO was established by a project jointly funded by the Research Council of Norway (2012–2021 under RCN contract 208375) and by a consortium of Norwegian universities and research institutions.

In the CLARINO+ project, a Norwegian consortium is working on updating the CLARINO infrastructure (RCN contract 295700, March 1, 2020 until Feb. 28, 2026).  During the updating, the infrastructure will remain accessible. The CLARINO+ project has the following work packages:

  1. Management and governance
  2. Tools and services upgrade
  3. Data integration and management
  4. Centres upgrade
  5. Uptake and dissemination
