The Strategic Agenda on the Multilingual Digital Single Market sets ambitious goals. However, we believe that the synergy of major three aspects of the Agenda is the key to achieve these goals. Firstly, SMEs as the main driver of innovation and competitiveness in multilingual technology, among others, in the European Union. Secondly, knowledge transfer across all sectors – public, academia, and business – which lays the foundation to multilingual infrastructures. And finally, a close cooperation between industry and research, addressing complex tasks of multilingual technology. Here in the Baltics, we have set an excellent example of such synergy, which is particularly important for smaller languages like Latvian, Lithuanian and Estonian in the digital age. We believe that the Baltic example can be scaled to a European level by aggregating the best practices developed by SMEs, by building strong Europe-wide multilingual infrastructures and by coordinating collaborative initiatives between industry and research.
