NeST Center, together with Stanford University and Singapore Nanyang Technological University were selected by the European Union as world class partners for the Renoir Project which funds a consortium of European universities to build excellence in information dynamics. The aim of the project is to treat the vast complexity of such information dynamics in social systems by involving researchers in social sciences, journalism, computing, data mining and complexity science. The Project’s objectives are: - discovery and reverse-engineering the mechanisms of information spreading in social media, such as dynamics of news releases, blog and internet for posts, Twitter messages, e-mails etc., - training and exchange of knowledge between partners in different domains.
