MUCHMORE is an international research project on cross-lingual
information access in the medical domain, jointly funded by NSF and the
European Commission (fifth framework).

MUCHMORE aims to provide a framework in which at the same time existing
technologies can be integrated and refined and new technologies can be
developed. Main emphasis in the project will be on developing new ways
