The Language Grid has been under development at the National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) and Kyoto University started its operation for non-profit use in December 2007. Thirty user groups joined it at the launch, and the Grid became so active that the number of groups increased to fifty in six months. However, the current operation is limited to non-profit use and cannot be applied to R&D at companies or to business purposes.

In this SIG, our goal is to find the technical and organizational issues and their solutions in the promotion of business use of the Language Grid.
