Petr Knoth

I lead an R&D team working in the domains of text-mining, digital libraries and open access/science. I am the Founder and Head of CORE (, the world’s largest dataset of open access papers from around the world for people to search and machines to text-mine.

I have a deep interest in the use of AI to improve research workflows. I have acted as a PI in a number of European Commission, national and international funded research projects in the areas of text-mining, open science and eLearning.

Previously, I worked as a Senior Data Scientist at Mendeley on information extraction and content recommendation for research.
