The NITE XML Toolkit is software that arose out of a European Commission-funded collaboration between the University of Edinburgh's Language Technology Group (LTG) , the University of Stuttgart's Institut für Maschinelle Sprachverarbeitung (IMS), and the Deutsches Forschungszentrum für Künstliche Intelligenz (DFKI). . Although the NITE project itself finished in 2003, the software is now being maintained and further developed via Sourceforge; the University of Twente has been a particularly active contributor. NXT is in use on a number of large distributed projects including JAST and TALK. The AMIDA project is its biggest user and also the largest current contributor to its development. This ensures NXT will continue to be developed and maintained until at least 2008. Our other past and current funders are The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (UK), The Economic and Social Research Council (UK), and Scottish Enterprise, via The Edinburgh-Stanford Link.
