  3. create a data-driven models of specific actors, communities and networks relevant to three case studies;
  4. use the tools and indicators developed by project to collect and analyze data relevant to the same studies;
  5. use the results from these studies to validate the methods and tools developed;
  6. implement, and release in open source, a platform for the capture and analysis of social network data relevant to measuring the social impact of research.
