About the Project:

“FIX the FIXING: Proactive quelling of sports events manipulation” is an Erasmus+ Collaborative Partnership, which utilizes state-of-the-art scientific knowledge and methods, in order to understand match fixing in sports, develop an educational tool that provides updated information and resources about abstaining from match fixing, as well as educate stakeholders and end-users about the harms of match fixing and how to abstain. More details can be found on the project’s webpage.

“TWEETFIX” is a project developed by OSWINDS Research Group as part of this collaborative partnership (A26, A27, A28 in WP5: Crowdsourced content retrieval and modelling). The goal is to crowdsource social media on the topic of match fixing. “TWEETFIX” performs social media mining regarding match fixing cases and related people on Twitter, Youtube and Google+, as well as data analytics and sentiment analysis techniques on the collected data, while it also enables the visualization of the results through an online platform.
