08 Feb FutureTDM Knowledge Cafes – coming soon!

Have your say on the future of text and data mining!

FutureTDM is a European Commission funded action to identify current barriers to text and data mining (TDM) in Europe and produce solid EU-wide recommendations that address and reduce these barriers on a legal, policy and organisational level.  

We’ll undertake policy analysis and consultation with researchers, developers, publishers, SMEs and any other stakeholder groups working in the field throughout the action and we’re holding several knowledge cafés across Europe over the coming months as an informal opportunity to gather feedback on text and data mining in the EU.

Over refreshments, stakeholders will have the opportunity to talk with each other and FutureTDM consortium members  about content mining. Our discussion will focus on four key areas:

  1. Legal clarity
  2. Economy
  3. Technical infrastructure
  4. Research environment, practices and services


This information will shape our in-depth surveys and interviews and ensure that our findings represent the knowledge and opinions of all major stakeholder groups. Information gathered in the meetings will feed into our reports and recommendations. These will also be made available on the FutureTDM Online Information Hub a web space developed for and by the TDM community to share expertise, build on best practice and collaborate. 

For more information contact office@futuretdm.eu and watch this space for dates and details coming soon! We hope you’ll be able to join us and have your say.
