CRACKER is a Coordination and Support Action under the H2020 Programme from the European Commission. This action has held its kick-off meeting in Berlin on February 10th, 2015, meeting which has been organised by its coordinator Deutsches Forschungszentrum für Künstliche Intelligenz GmbH (DFKI) and attended by all the project's partners.

CRACKER aims at providing planned coordination and support to the European machine translation research community, which is suffering from the pressure of the current challenges and needs of the Digital Single Market. The principle behind this support action is that "sharing data, results and evaluation instruments" leads to a successful evolution and this collaborative work needs to go through the definition of priorities, planning, organisation, organisation of evaluations and then sharing of the outcome. For that purpose, CRACKER counts on a Consortium of experts covering all these needs and it builds upon established networks, infrastructures and evaluation campaigns. ELDA/ELRA participates in this project providing its expertise in all relevant aspects of the language resource sharing landscape.
