About OpenMinTeD

OpenMinTeD is a European project of 16 partners that sets out to develop a sustainable infrastructure for text and data mining. We are working on a platform that brings together  text and data, TDM tools and services, training, support and guidelines. Rather than developing new tools, we are adapting existing tools and services and repositories in order to make them interoperable.

 

 

FutureTDM and OpenMinTeD organise TDM workshop for research libraries

Many university and national libraries are exploring the best way to support researchers with text and data mining.  That’s why on July 5th 2017, OpenMinTeD and FutureTDM organised a workshop about text and data mining at the LIBER conference in Patras. 4 different speakers guided 16 participants through  the various aspects of TDM.
