Cross-lingual Event-centric Open Analytics Research Academy

The CLEOPATRA ITN, a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network aims to make sense of the massive digital coverage generated by the intense disruption in Europe over the past decade – including appalling terrorist incidents and the dramatic movement of refugees and economic migrants.


The CLEOPATRA ITN offers a unique interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral research and training programme, which will explore how we can begin to analyse and understand the major events that influence and shape our lives and our societies. It will facilitate advanced cross-lingual processing of textual and visual information related to key contemporary events at scale, and will develop innovative methods for efficient and intuitive user access to and interaction with multilingual information.
