UniteEurope: Social Media Analytics and Decision Support Tools Enabling Sustainable Integration Policies and Measures
UniteEurope is an EU-FP7 project that aims at giving the main actors of integration - immigrants and members of the host society - a voice by analysing public social media content generated by citizens, in order to support decision making in urban and pan-European integration policies. The UniteEurope team consists of social scientists and IT specialists from leading universities, municipalities, cities and NGOs from Austria, Germany, the Netherlands and Sweden, and it is counseled by various international governmental and non-governmental organisations dealing with migration issues. For more information, visit the Unite Europe website: http://www.uniteeurope.org/
