September 27, 2013 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

“The Perfect Swell: Workshop on Text and Data Mining for Data Driven Innovation” at the British Library on Friday the 27th of September 2013.

The workshop is intended as a follow-up to our joint response and subsequent withdrawal from the Licences for Europe workshop on text and data mining. It is intended as a means of initiating a broader discussion around text and data mining with the context of data driven innovation and well as providing feedback to policymakers regarding the conditions need to foster text and data mining in Europe for both research and innovation.
