We cordially invite you to join on this workshop in which we introduce the European Social Innovation Database (ESID) and receive your feedback on the future of ESID and explore collaboration opportunities utilising ESID.
ESID is a comprehensive and authoritative source of information on social innovation projects in Europe and beyond. Initially developed as part of the EU Funded KNOWMAK project, ESID is now being developed as part of the EU funded RISIS 2 Project. ESID utilizes advanced machine learning and natural language processing techniques to collect information about social innovation projects and actors from the publicly available information on the web. ESID also uses some limited human annotation to train its machine learning models and to ensure the quality and the integrity of the data. ESID is developed by a team based in the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK. ESID data and code are open for research purposes. You can explore ESID here: https://esid.shinyapps.io/ESID/
We will send the joining instructions shortly before the event via e-mail.
