Monocl Software has been granted funding for its groundbreaking Social Impact Analytics project from the reputable European funding program Eurostars. Monocl Software will perform the project together with the web intelligence company Recorded Future and the Dutch institute Center for Science and Technology Studies. The project was ranked among the top 4% of all eligible projects, due to its highly innovative nature and excellent applicability within Life Science.

The project will establish a groundbreaking Social Impact Analytics Graph for assessing experts and opinion leaders within Life Science. Users will be able to truly understand the influencing capacity and social fingerprint of individual experts and organizations by analyzing their activity and presence in a vast number of sources, including news, conferences, social media, blogs and much more. Monocl Software will lead the project consortium, which also includes Recorded Future and the Center for Science and Technology Studies (CWTS). In addition, several major pharmaceutical and medical device companies will support the development throughout the project.

“This project enables us to push limits and do things never seen before in the industry. We have a great chance to help pharmaceutical companies and other organizations reshape how they build their professional networks and we will bring a completely new dimension to their understanding of true influencers and key stakeholders. The consortium has a perfect mix of competencies to link such a huge amount of sources to individual experts and organizations with high quality - we cannot wait to get started.” says Monocl Software’s CEO Björn Carlsson.
