Joint Research Centre

A keyword database has been constructed based on the described methodology. The main motivation for this exercise was to observe trends in funding committed to topics, technologies and applications, by the FCH 2 JU.


The keyword hierarchy that has been constructed has been mapped onto the Programme Review days (PRD) Panels, and could be used to help define to which panel a new project should be allocated. The database can also provide useful supporting data to the ongoing historical analysis, which is trying to determine the overall impact of the FCH 2 JU activities since its inception.


The final registered version of the deliverable Keyword Analysis and Project Classification of FCH 2 JU Projects: An Overview of the Methodology Plus Selected Data is available here.
