Publié le 19 décembre 2013, par Thérèse Hameau

UCL and Elsevier, a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical information products and services, today announced they will establish the UCL Big Data Institute.

It is a new collaboration to explore innovative ways to better serve needs of researchers through the exploration of new technologies and analytics as applied to scholarly content and data.

Elsevier believes linking analytics and scientific content is one of the key enablers to better serve scientists and the company will fund research and studentships through the new Institute, offering exciting new opportunities to research the analysis, use and storage of big data.

The new Institute will complement Elsevier’s recent acquisition of Mendeley, a company that operates a global research management and collaboration platform in the heart of east London’s tech start-up community, and Elsevier’s recent investment into building a London-based world-class web analytics group. Elsevier will establish a Centre of Excellence within the web analytics group in connection with the Institute, co-staffed with UCL researchers looking at areas outlined earlier. This will offer employment as well as commercialisation activities in collaboration with UCL Business and UCL Consultants.
