SIGN-HUB involves participation of seven countries: Spain, The Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy, Turkey and Israel. We are working together to provide an innovative and inclusive resource hub for the linguistic, historical and cultural documentation of the Deaf communities’ heritage and for sign language assessment in clinical intervention and school settings. To this end, it will create an open state-of-the-art digital platform with customized accessible interfaces. The project will initially feed that platform with core content in the following domains, expandable in the future to other sign languages:

(i) digital grammars of 6 sign languages, produced with a new online grammar writing tool;

(ii) an interactive digital atlas of linguistic structures of the world's sign languages;

(iii) online sign language assessment instruments for education and clinical intervention, and

(iv) the first digital archive of life narratives by elderly signers, subtitled and partially annotated for linguistic properties.
