TechMining for Global Good

The VPInstitute is pleased to sponsor the annual TechMining for Global Good award, recognizing steadfast TechMining-enabled efforts to advance decision-making processes and policy options on typically under-resourced issues of global importance. TechMining, short for “text-mining of science & technology information resources,” is a special form of “Big Data” analytics.  Using bibliometric and text-mining software (e.g., VantagePoint, TDA) as well as other analytical & visualization applications, TechMining analyses of Science, Technology & Innovation (ST&I) information resources result in actionable intelligence for technology management and/or policy development. This award is granted annually at the Global TechMining Conference since 2016.
