Publié le 7 janvier 2014, par Thérèse Hameau

Topic : Scientific Information in the Digital Age : Text and Data Mining (TDM)

Specific challenge : TDM is the process of deriving information from machine-read material and is an essential feature in open science and innovation. It has enabled new innovations, with ramifications not only for research itself but also for the economy and society. Building upon present knowledge is an important component of research that leads to new innovations. TDM therefore has a huge potential for research and innovation and the economy as a whole. However, there are significant barriers which hinder the more widespread use of TDM in the European Union.

Scope : This proposals shall study TDM in the modern research environment and its relations with societal implications, with the following foci :

  • Policy developments and legal framework in the EU and its Member States (including copyright exemptions) ;
  • Increasing awareness of TDM in institutional settings and among stakeholders, as well as the skills, rewards and support involved in using this technology.
