The final Workshop of the Organic.Lingua project, took place on Thursday, February 6th, 2014 at the premises of (CAE) in Rome, Italy. The event was co-organized by the Organic.Lingua project partners Agro-Know Technologies and University of Alcalá (UAH) and collocated with the Herbal.Mednet 3rd project meeting.
Salvador, Enayat and David attended the workshop, which was entitled “Using multilingual technologies in web portals – Challenges & Promises since it was focused in the multilingual outcomes of the project and how to enhance their reusability. The workshop started with the following presentations:

At the end of every presentation the audience was able to formulate questions and considerations regarding the future of the project and how to reuse its outcomes. After a coffee break, the event continued with two focus groups, one to discuss about technical challenges and the other one to deal with user-oriented issues.
The event closed with a networking session in the form of a round-table discussion, which provided the opportunity to the participants to discuss on potential opportunities arising from Horizon 2020 and Connecting Europe Facility.
An italo-spanish-iranian group (i.e. all IE members present in the workshop plus Victor Gonzalvez and Ana Lladosa from SEAE plus Luis and Barbara from AIAB) ended this fruitful day at “Da Enzo al 29” a great Trattoria, that we highly recommend! It’s good to know that almost everything is set up and ready for the next stop of Organic.Lingua project, the final review.
