OpenMinTED invites researchers, service providers and SMEs to submit proposals related to the development and integration of existing text mining/NLP applications or software components. Apply by Jan 26, 2018.



OpenMinted OpenMinTED (openminted.eu) Open Tender Phase II Funding Award for text and data mining developers including resources for processing life sciences, biomedicine and agriculture scientific publications

Over the past years there has been a considerable accumulation of scientific literature particularly in the field of biomedicine and life sciences which motivated the implementation of biomedical text mining solutions to extract automatically valuable scientific information.

The OpenMinTED aspires to enable the creation of an open infrastructure that facilitates the use of text and data mining technologies in the scientific publications world, building on existing text mining tools, and renders them interoperable through appropriate registries and a standards-based interoperability layer.

OpenMinTED, as part of its open tender call initiative, invites researchers, service providers and SMEs to submit proposals related to the development and integration of existing text mining/NLP applications or software components as well as knowledge resources that can align and interoperate with the OpenMinTeD infrastructure.

The OpenMinTED has particular interest in TDM resources for annotating and extracting relevant information such as named entities from domains including (but not limited to) biomedicine, life sciences, clinical research, agriculture, neurology/neurosciences and chemistry.

Why you should apply

Winners of this call will be awarded € 7.000 (for small bids) or € 17.500 (for larger bids) including VAT and expenses to implement the integration of their software or components into the OpenMinTeD infrastructure.
