MLIS PROGRAMME
News on the December 1997 Calls for Proposals


Demonstration of Best Practice in Translation and Interpretation
Setting up the European Electronic Forum for Terminology

On 16 December 1997 two Calls for Proposals were launched under MLIS (Multilingual Information Society). Both were made available to the public via the Supplements to the Official Journal and via the Internet ( I*M-Europe ). In response to these announcements, around 350 requests for information packs were received. These were dealt with by the Commission and by the MIDAS-NET nodes. Information was disseminated either in electronic or printed format. All EU language groups and all Member States were represented in the requests for information.

In the period from December 1997 onwards the MLIS home page on the Internet logged more than 4 500 hits specifically related to the MLIS calls . This represents a 700% increase compared to the previous calls and proves that the Internet has become "the" favourite dissemination medium.

Thirteen proposals (13) were received in response to each of the calls (26 responses in total) with even representation from the EEA countries.
