The /Joint Research Centre/ in Ispra, Northern Italy, started working on

classification (NERC), name variant matching, event scenario template 
filling, multi-document summarisation, sentiment analysis, topic 
detection and tracking, cross-lingual linking of related documents and

The focus of the JRC's work has always been on *high multilinguality
*(between ten and fifty languages), on *multilingual and multi-
document information aggregation *and fusion, as well as on tools to
provide *cross-lingual information access*. The text analysis tools
have been integrated with the news gathering engine /Europe Media
