The European Commission has just published a number of 2012 Roadmaps that are determining the direction of future EC Communications. Amongst them re some that could have an impact on LT – alas, the word language does not enter the text :
- Pan European framework for electronic identification, authentication and signature. Based on the large-scale project STORK, the EC calls for legislative back-up to make eID across the EU happen.
- Digital Agenda for Europe – Next steps. The roadmap wants to act against the fragmented European on-line market to create a true single market for online content and services by 2015.
- Communication on the developments in the area of access to scientific information. Here again, no mentioning of languages that would allow for a truly ubiquitous access for all Europeans.
Reports show that digitisation and digital preservation across Europe remain fragmented. Technologies need to be developed, e.g. for cross-language search.
