The NPLD partners behind the ECCA project

All partners involved in this ECCA project are members of the Network to Promote Linguistic Diversity (NPLD). The NPLD is a European network that works in the area of  language policy. The focus of the NPLD is on the so-called ‘regional and minority  languages’ such as Frisian in the Netherlands, Friulian and Ladin in Italy, Hungarian in Romania and Catalan in Spain. The aim of the NPLD is to raise awareness in Europe about the importance of linguistic diversity. Over 40 governments, language organizations and universities are members of the NPLD where they exchange best practices with each other about language planing and contribute to lobby in the EU institutions.

This ECCA project is initiated by 7 NPLD partners in 5 regions, gives substance to cooperate on project level across the borders. The ECCA project is possible thanks to the financial support of the NPLD and the 7 NPLD partners. After June 2020 a decision will be made about whether to expand the project to more NPLD regions and/or countries.
