This multimedia platform was set up in 1999 as an initiative of the language services of nine Catalan universities along with the Language Policy Office. It is co-financed by the European Union, the Ministry of Universities, Research and the Information Society and the Catalan public universities. As of 2007 the updating and maintenance of the Intercat portal has been the responsibility of the Secretariat for Universities and Research of the Ministry of Economy and Knowledgement.
