Making the ESG puzzle pieces fit
The multidisciplinary nature of ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) means that putting data together to make it understandable and actionable can be a rather demanding task.
Using data to help avoid an outbreak of invasive species
In this on-demand webinar, Les Kneebone, Information Architect and Digital Librarian at CEBRA, will discuss a project that collects biosecurity research metadata from open access sources, such as government, industry and research institution repositories. The project uses technology, including PoolParty Taxonomy Management and Unified Views, to organize, transform and tag biosecurity research. The goal is to make biosecurity gray literature more accessible, and to address terminology issues for answering biosecurity questions that are typically asked in the ESG space.
After this webinar you’ll understand:
- What is biosecurity
- What does biosecurity research cover
- How to build new biosecurity taxonomies, assisted by corpus linguistic analysis
- How to collect and transform metadata
- Possibilities for intersecting concepts and schemes to gain insights to ESG problems
Additionally, Sebastian Gabler, Chief Customer Office at Semantic Web Company, will deliver a live demo of a semantic knowledge hub that captures various sources of data and presents all the relevant information in a user-friendly way. Our goal is to show attendees how organizations can leverage taxonomies to bridge information gaps in the knowledge-intensive domain of ESG.
