Alpage is a joint team with University Paris 7 (Department of Linguistics) that was created in July 2007, with members coming in majority from the former Paris 7 Talana team (member of the Lattice UMR) and INRIA former project-team Atoll.

Since February 2008, Alpage is a full Inria project-team. Since January 1st, 2009, Alpage an UMR-I (University Paris 7 & Inria) registered in the Paris 7 quadriennal plan as the UMR-I 001.
