The Assignment

Analysis of different types of networks such as social, financial or biological networks, has become a necessary tool for many organizations as the world has become more interconnected in the last decade. This led to the introduction of dedicated software for network analysis. There have been efforts in the same direction also within ABN AMRO Bank. Now, we would like to extend our capabilities in this direction by applying network analysis to a use case that concerns our collaborations with academia.


By establishing key partnerships for educational, research and resourcing purposes, we hope to create value in building up knowledge that will allow for innovation and new business opportunities. In order to discover the value of such a relationship ABN AMRO has launched a project that aims to investigate:


  • how to create an objective tool that assess the expertise on university professors.
  • how to track publications that are relevant to areas of interest of the bank.
  • how to extend our network capabilities to respond more quickly to cases in similar fields.


The university collaboration and Internship office teams require the tools to ensure spot innovation and more effective collaboration with universities by closely monitoring the scientific literature published. Ideally, the first tool will allow us to associate academic subjects with Dutch university professors who have expertise in them and also indicate the level of expertise. The second tool must be able to discover information on recent publications on cutting-edge topics that are relevant for the bank.


Input: data from university webpages, bibliometric data (e.g. citations), citation networks and other relevant data sources.

Desired output: Rankings of professors and universities by level of expertise on different subjects

Requirements: Python, collaborative filtering, network analysis (citation networks), text mining (webpages), NLP, web scraping
