Online Workshop on ESID, European Social Innovation Database

Are you interested in knowing more about  ESID, the European Social Innovation Database? You shouldn’t miss the opportunity to participate to the online Workshop organized by the University of Strathclyde on 14 February from 11 to 14 (CET).


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 RISIS project.


The workshop involves Dr. Abdullah Gök and the team that worked at ESID  and Dr Philippe Larédo, RISIS project coordinator.
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:
