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, future-oriented analyses, technical emergence, etc.) as well as science and innovation policy applications (interdisciplinary research metrics, science maps, network analyses, 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 Bibliometrics, Scientometrics, Patent Analytics, Innovation Management, and Information Science.
