The DigiSami project was part of joint research funded by the Academy of Finland and the Hungarian Academy of Science. The goal of the joint research was to increase the visibility and use of small Finno-Ugric languages in the digital world, by applying language technology to develop digital materials.

It investigated how modern language technology and corpus-based linguistic research can contribute to handling the digitalisation challenges faced by small Fenno-Ugric language communities.
