Multi-Layer Social Network Analysis for Economic Inequities and Asymmetries
The main goal of the research is to formulate the asymmetry of networks and find adequate economic inequity models to explain the asymmetry of links. The proposed research method is not restricted to the collaboration and the mobility networks; however, these datasets are ready to analyze.
The proposed research offers a new aspect of social network analysis in order to move on to explain properties of networks. The proposed multi-layer network approaches and models offer researchers to analyze interconnections of different kind of social networks, such as collaboration and mobility networks. Thanks to the collaboration with Budapest Ranking Research Group, one of the biggest, data cleaned collaboration and mobility networks are prepared to analyze and specify recommendations not only for Hungarian Governments, but for the Councils of the European Union.
