TraMOOC brings together a consortium of leading researchers, highly relevant industrial organizations and leading user partners. The partners’ diverse interests in machine translation, linguistics, text mining web analytics and crowdsourcing methodologies-related areas make the consortium ideally placed to tackle the challenges associated with TraMOOC. The design of the scientific areas and the associated work packages have been arranged carefully to ensure maximum efficiency of input from each partner while maintaining a suitable distribution of responsibilities. Many of the partners have proven experience in collaborating within EU projects in the last 10 years; some partners have collaborated together before, in other European projects. As a result, members of the Consortium have established good personal relationships and a strong team ethic. Such a team spirit is an important asset for the success of the project.
