What is IMO?

There are many good social science databases in Estonia, but so far, they have not been longitudinally, geographically and on cross-domain bases harmonized and integrated. The IMO is the subject of the Estonian Research Infrastructures Roadmap, which aims to develop an innovative data infrastructure supporting mobile research, which consists of five main components: IMO single user Portal, country-specific e-data, mobile data,  context data and  sensor data. They are made available through secure workplaces, user interfaces, and query environments.

The IMO wants to make the basic social science data more user-friendly, to bring it closer to decision-makers and to improve the quality of research.

Planned infrastructure

  • The continuing development of combined employee and employer data.
  • Combining of Estonian and Finnish individual-level data sets for analyzing cross-border migration flows.
  • Development of CV-Center job portal data.
  • Combining individual-level data with the genetic data of the Estonian Genome Center to study the relationship between heredity and socio-economic characteristics.
  • Interpretation, analysis, and valuation of big data collected by the urban environment sensor network.
  • Intensive use of a traffic flow video counting system and the creation of additional databases.
  • Facilitating the combination of the traffic flow video counting system and the urban environment sensor network into one integrated network for continuous determination of traffic flow parameters in Tallinn, later to adapt and develop it in other cities and regions.
