The Social&Creative Community developed three main tools to help policy maker and relevant stakeholders to define the local and regional policies on creativity and social innovation.
Web space which collects and presents the relevant tools developed by the 11 Modular Project in the Social&Creative Community. The tool is addressed to creatives, NGOs, education & research centers, companies, public authorities, policy makers of the MED community to help them to step forward and build their capacity to innovate across a wide range of thematic areas and territories. It is also addressed to creatives outside the MED area who want to learn more about the Mediterranean innovation and are looking for potential collaborations and opportunities.
Select the tools relavant for you to get an easy access to reports, videos, MOOCS, apps and all the useful deliverables provided by the Community!
Search engine tool based on the assessment of a collection of documents and deliverables coming from the past and current MED programming period and project outcomes.
The system developed by TALIA project allows to perform semantic searches, exploring the hidden and unknown connections among MED projects, pilots actions and private&public stakeholders belonging to a same or different thematic domain by indexing, analyzing and searching for collections of heterogeneous documents to extract knowledge through natural language processing, distributive semantics and data visualization techniques.
The power of the semantic search engine lies in the fact that there is no need to retrieve the same keyword(s) within the body of any two documents to establish a connection between them; it is the machine (with its artificial intelligence) that identifies the connection and “weighs” it, returning to the user a list of related documents ranked by relevance.
The semantic framework allows three different activities:
- the benchmark, to compare regional performances (inside and outside the MED area) on the basis of different indicators related to creativity and social innovation and to display historical trends in relation to these indicators, from the regional to the European level;
- smart search (discovery), through which it is possible to obtain the abstracts of various documents present in the various collections; obtain lists of documents sorted on the basis of semantic searches and concepts; extract new words from documents;
- the design, that contributes to the validation of any policy implemented, provided that there is a fairly large collection of documents to be analyzed.
Online map created to provide information and explore specific features of the 11 Modular Projects in the Social&Creative Community. Searchable map present geographical distribution of S&C modular Interreg MED projects, the consortia and associated partners, the stakeholders and projects beneficiaries, thus providing detailed information about the activities, budget, contact information and thematic areas.
