A series of meetings was held at the Faculty of Social Sciences from May 29 to June 4 between Centre for Social Informatics (CSI) andThe Samuel Neaman Institute for National Policy Research (SNI), Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Israel, for the purpose of cooperation on the bilateral project "Digital transformation of quantitative data collection in social science research: Integrating survey data collection with big data and paradata for identifying social behaviour".

The agenda of the meetings addressed four main aspects of the bilateral project. First, the triangulation of survey data with digital trace data and paradata was discussed, together with the relationship between paradata and response quality. The aims and tasks with respect to a joint online survey were then addressed, where both Israeli and Slovenian draft questionnaires were presented and evaluated by members of CSI and SNI.

Third, the methodology and key findings of hate speech analysis were presented for both Israeli (Buzzilla tool) and Slovenian case (FRENK project). The practical application of several tools was also presented, namely the web survey software OneClickSurvey (1KA), social media analysis software Buzzilla, and website analysis tool SimilarWeb. Future cooperation between CSI and NSI in relation to research deliverables and publications was discussed with plans of holding additional meetings in Haifa and Ljubljana in 2019 and 2020.
