Network organization Amsterdam Data Science (ADS) and Elsevier are collaborating together on several fronts, including research and development, joint promotion of Amsterdam as a data science center, and data science talent development. This partnership marks the first long-term collaboration agreement signed by ADS, an initiative of the University of Amsterdam, VU University, Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences and Centrum Wiskunde & Informatica. A number of projects have already started. These are focused on improving data search and reproducibility of research that will ultimately result in higher quality research outcomes. These projects entail:
- Developing better methods and infrastructure to share data for scientific experiments, ensuring better reuse of data in a safe and trusted manner. • Developing new search and discovery technologies for searching data underlying scientific experiments.
- Applying knowledge graph technology to, for instance, help researchers find funding for their research or identify new relations that were previously not detectable.
