One of the aims of META-NET (http://www.meta-net.eu/) is to produce a Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) for Europe's Language Technology landscape. The agenda will contain high level recommendations, ideas for visionary LT-based applications and suggestions for joint actions to be presented to the EC and national as well as regional bodies. A "visioning" phase (META-VISION) is currently ongoing, the participation in which is open to all via the online discussion forum (http://www.meta-net.eu/forum) The current state of the META-VISION process is reported in a new document entitled The Future European Multilingual Information Society (available at http://www.meta-net.eu/vision/index_html/reports/meta-net-vision-paper.pdf).
