The new H2020 European project “OpenMinTeD” will be the first to build an infrastructure that makes it much easier to mine, by making existing text mining tools discoverable, interoperable and usable. The infrastructure brings together text and data registries/databases and will develop a standard layer, that makes it possible to easily find text and data from all over the world, and mine it. . . . It brings together the different stakeholders, content providers and scientific communities, text mining and infrastructure builders, legal experts, data and computing centres, industrial players and SMEs.
