The CLEOPATRA ITN, a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network led by the L3S Research Center at the Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz University of Hannover, ran from 1 January 2019 to June 2023. It aimed to make sense of the massive digital coverage generated by the intense disruption in Europe over the past decade – including appalling terrorist incidents and the dramatic movement of refugees and economic migrants.

The CLEOPATRA ITN offered a unique interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral research and training programme, which explored how we can begin to analyse and understand the major events that influence and shape our lives and our societies. It facilitated advanced cross-lingual processing of textual and visual information related to key contemporary events at scale, and developed innovative methods for efficient and intuitive user access to and interaction with multilingual information.
