The aim of the European Network of e-Lexicography is to increase, co-ordinate and harmonise European research in the field of e-lexicography and to make authoritative information on the languages of Europe easily accessible. The network will:
- Make lexical knowledge of small and large languages available in a European dictionary portal. This portal will serve as the central reference point for all dictionary users who look for reliable, authorative dictionary information on the languages of Europe and their histories on the Internet.
- Enable cooperation and the exchange of resources, technologies and experience in e-lexicography and provide support for dictionaries which are not yet online.
- Discuss and aim at establishing standards for innovative e-dictionaries that fully exploit the possibilities of the digital medium.
- Establish new ways of representing the common heritage of European languages by developing shared editorial practices and by interconnecting already existing information.
