Representativeness of keep.eu data

Keep.eu has extensive data on projects, programmes and partners of Territorial Cooperation involving the European Union, since 2000. And it adds more by the minute, even though updates to this page only come once a day, after close of business.

This page provides an understanding of how much keep.eu covers the projects and partners in the overall sector made up of Interreg, Interreg-IPA and ENI cross-border to this date.

The charts and base figures show how representative keep.eu is overall. The Excel exports contain how each single field is represented, both at programme-type and at programme levels. An important note in connection with this: Fields with very little text are a real challenge for language detection, which may lead to errors.

The FAQ entry on data contains important information regarding the full array of data, their meaning, concepts pertaining to data in keep.eu, processes, among many other issues that provide a solid understanding of data in keep.eu.

Important dates to understand keep.eu’s representativeness

  • 2022-05-17, last addition of projects or partnerships to the keep.eu database.
  • 2022-02-11, latest counting of projects/partnerships from all programmes’ websites.
  • 2022-05-31, foreseen next counting of projects/partnerships from all programmes’ websites.

Projects in keep.eu versus the sector (%)

The chart compares the number of projects in the database with the overall number of actual projects. The latter is collected manually from all the Interreg, Interreg-IPA and ENI cross-border programmes’ websites every three months. Be sure to check the dates on the top-right side of this page to understand when the last count was and when the next one will be.

Important note: Keep.eu focuses on contracted projects. Representativeness per project thus shows, as much as possible, how many contracted projects there are in keep.eu versus overall. However, some programmes show on their websites the number of approved projects only. In these cases, representativeness is reckoned with the number of approved projects in the denominator. We thus tend to show an apparent representativeness rate of keep.eu somewhat below the real one.

Keep.eu contains information on ALL the Interreg (cross-border, transnational and interregional), Interreg-IPA cross-border, ENPI/ENI cross-border and IPA-IPA cross-border programmes since 2000. Programme data representativeness is thus 100%.

What the chart compares is the number of programmes featuring projects in the database with the overall number of existing Interreg, Interreg-IPA and ENI cross-border programmes (IPA-IPA cross-border programmes are not included in this reckoning, since the goal is, for these programmes’ projects, to show in keep.eu a qualitatively, as opposed to quantitatively, representative set).

Since one of the four interregional programmes (Interact, the programme that manages keep.eu) does not work with projects, it is not included in the overall count of programmes. For this reason, the figures in the chart and table below, and in general for the purposes of representativeness of keep.eu, consider only three interregional programmes.

Documents

Starting in the 2014-2020 period, the keep.eu team has been collecting output documents on the projects featured in the keep.eu database. The goal is to preserve and aggregate (for ease of search) the wealth of knowledge and expertise gained by the sector’s projects.

It is not possible to precisely reckon how representative our library is, hence we use a proxy, featured in the chart and table below. For instance, many projects produce no thematic documents, or very few, whereas others produce a large number of documents. This doesn’t mean that the former projects do not deliver (document production is mainly a result of a project’s nature, goals, and method). But it means that representativeness will tend to skew negatively. The more documents are collected and published, the more distorted the sense of representativeness will be.

The chart and table below (and the Excel export) should thus only be used as an imperfect gauge of keep.eu’s progress in collecting documents, per programme. Uses beyond that are a misuse of its nature.

Important to know about the process: The keep.eu team collects documents in rounds, each round covering all the programmes with data in keep.eu. It started with the programmes which projects closed the earliest. Documents are collected only for projects that closed at least six months beforehand. Regarding videos, only those in Youtube or Vimeo are embedded in keep.eu. Lastly, in case a transnational project lists the same document in different language editions, only the one in English is uploaded to keep.eu.
