VP Institute is an online forum for circulation of “TechMining” research results and case studies. TechMining, a special form of “Big Data” text-based analytics, aims to generate practical intelligence using bibliometric and text-mining software (e.g., VantagePoint, DDA) as well as other analytical & visualization applications for analyses of Science, Technology & Innovation (ST&I) information resources, for Management of Technology applications (competitive technological intelligence, technology roadmapping, technology process management, etc.) as well as science and innovation policy applications (interdisciplinary research metrics, science maps, research evaluation, etc.). We use text-mining and visualization software to discover knowledge and inform decision-making.

For users of VantagePoint software with login credentials, this site also provides training, tech support, and a platform for collaboration.

VP Institute is relevant to academic researchers and students from a range of fields including Scientometrics, Public Policy, Management of Technology, and Information Science.
