A meeting was held in Denmark on 27-28/11, with representatives from universities and development agencies with an interest in small languages in Europe. Presentations were exchanged on the state of the Gaelic languages in Ireland and Scotland, and on the Sámi languages in Norway and Finland. An international research project is now being actively considered, in which universities and development agencies can work together to deepen understanding of the small languages situation, and make recommendations for creating a new development model.
