Team: Tobias Backes, Dr. Andrea Zielinski

Scientific unit: Knowledge Technologies for the Social Sciences

Abstract

The vision of the MOVING project is to develop an innovative training platform that enables people from all societal sectors (companies, universities, public administration) to fundamentally improve their information literacy by training how to use, choose, reflect and evaluate data/text mining methods in connection with their daily research tasks. We believe that an extensive distribution of this type of information literacy education in the sense of a data-savvy information professional will have a decisive impact on the innovative capacity of the European society. The MOVING project will train people to cope with the large amount of Internet-based information they are faced with as part of their daily professional duties. We provide them technical support as well as social advice to organise, filter and exploit these information in a more efficient and sustainable way.
