Esprit

[e-spree]
Fléchier, Esprit, 1632-1710, French writer. He was a famous pulpit orator and became bishop of Nǐmes. His principal work is an account of special assizes held at Clermont (1665) for the repression of crime, in which most of the local nobility was involved. Fléchier's manner is witty and detached; he attended the proceedings only as an onlooker.
ESPRIT is an acronym for the European Strategic Program on Research in Information Technology of the European Union, run by the Directorate General for Industry of the European Commission.

ESPRIT developed the initial version of SAMPA before being superseded by the Information Society Technologies (IST) programme ().
