Friulian language and culture can only expand if Friulian becomes a communication means for one of the main features of modernity, i.e. science Despite the fact that the international scientific community uses English for communication, across the different countries the national languages are used for teaching and development of science and technology. On the basis of this assumption, the SSTeF was founded.
The SSTeF is an independent association made up of researchers, scholars and professionals working in different scientific and technological fields who have develppment of Friulian language and culture at heart. The aim of SSTeF is to promote the development of research and knowledge dissemination in Friulian. SSTeF supports any project concerning the application of information technology to Friulian; it carries out activities to study, safeguard, and promote biodiversity in the Friulian region; it supports the publication of scholarly books in Friulian and their translation into English; it grants scholarships to researchers who want to publish their studies in Friulian too; it has relationships with Friulian institutions and companies involved in scientific and technological research.
