We are doing science for policy
The Joint Research Centre (JRC) is the European Commission's science and knowledge service which employs scientists to carry out research in order to provide independent scientific advice and support to EU policy.
The freely accessible Europe Media Monitor (EMM) is a fully automatic system that analyses both traditional and social media. It gathers and aggregates about 300,000 news articles per day from news portals world-wide in up to 70 languages.
EMM-NewsBrief groups related items, categorises them into thousands of classes, extracts information, produces statistics, detects breaking news and sends out alerts. NewsBrief is updated every 10 minutes, 24 hours per day.
There is also a free EMM app for mobile devices.
You find more information on the Europe Media Monitor family of applications in the EMM-Newsletter (2016), as well as in the articles Observing Trends in Automated Multilingual Media Analysis (2015) and An Introduction to the Europe Media Monitor family of applications (2009). There is also a list of over 200 international scientific peer-reviewed publications on research by the EMM team.
