TIM Edge puts together various datasets to track emerging technologies as they progress towards concrete market applications. Patents, scientific publications, and other datasets on the one hand, news from the media on the other hand, are used to follow the trajectory of technologies.
News related to emerging technologies listed in TIM Edge are collected through Europe Media Monitor. Have a look!
TIM Energy has been built using the technologies and R&D priorities identified in the SET-plan of the European Commission. It contains many technologies and concepts related to energy but is by far not exhaustive.
Mapping of cyber-security through domains of specialisations, sectorial dimensions and technological applications.
TIM Technology Editor allows its users to create and visualise datasets about specific technological issues. It brings together datasets such as patents, scientific publications, and EU grants. TIM has been fully developed by the JRC but is using proprietary data; access is therefore subject to certain terms and conditions.
TIM Technology offers various means to visualise data about technological development and innovation. Different types of graphics (network graph, time series, pie chart, matrix, wordcloud, etc.) can be used to visualise the content of datasets from various perspective i.e. using different data fields (organisations, keywords, patent classes, etc.). Find below some examples.
Time series are used to visualise values associated to data fields per year.
Network graphs are widely used in TIM technology. They are composed of node and edges and by default nodes represent bundles of document having metadata in common and edges exist between two nodes when they contain one or more documents in common. Both nodes and edges vary in size with the number of data items. In addition, nodes are clustered into communities on the basis of their modularity, which reflects the connectedness between the nodes. NG can be used to visualise any of the data field in TIM: organisations, countries, cities, regions, keywords, journal categories, patent classes, etc.
Maps display documents (patents, scientific publications, EU grants) according to the location of the university or the organisation involved.
Rather than displaying information in graphs, the lists show numerical data. Features like sorting, formatting, filtering or highlighting are available.
The document list shows information about documents contained in datasets : author, year, abstract, affiliation, etc.
Matrix view can be used to better visualise the intersection between selected elements (countries, entities, etc).
The TIM Technology products were developed on an original idea from CERN, in close collaboration with the European Media Monitor project.
