WP 3 – Network analytics and visualization

WP3 had a successful start-up meeting in the beginning of September. Prospectively WP3 is making a distinction between visualizations and network analysis; the visualization part of the WP will focus on the development of visualizations to integrate in the OPERA VIVO platforms; whereas the network analysis part of the WP is more complex and will be a skill developing part of the OPERA project. In the coming quarter, we are looking forward to work on identifying possible visualizations to complement data, in close collaboration with WP1, for the VIVO platforms. Additionally all of the WP3 participants will participate in a network analysis masterclass in end-October organized in collaboration by DEFF and our international project partners from CWTS. The masterclass centers around lessons learned- and cases made in the AIDA-project – a TU Delft based project that aims at providing easy-to-use tools for visualization and analysis of research areas and research trends.
