What we're about

Meet local people interested in the Semantic Web, an initiative by the W3C [ http://www.w3c.org ] to make the web a giant database: The Data Web. We address technologies such as RDF, RDFS, OWL and applications that help to develop or that use ontologies, controlled vocabularies and rules systems in the enterprise and on the World Wide Web.

FAIR Data Spaces Now!

Needs a location

The ability to exchange data is becoming more important in many aspects of professional and social life - in research, mobility, health, energy, social media, and many more. Hence efforts are underway to develop reliable infrastructure for data spaces - in Europe, this includes common shared data spaces such as GAIA-X, the European Open Science Cloud, the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI), just to name a few. But importantly they all have an essential feature in common: FAIR data principles, which provide common semantics to build interoperable shared data spaces.

Stefan Decker is a full professor of Databases and Information Systems at RWTH Aachen University and director of the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Information Technology (FIT), which works on several data space initiatives. He previously was the director of DERI in Ireland, worked at Stanford University and the Information Sciences Institute (ISI), and worked on many seminal Semantic Web activities. He currently advises the German government within the National Council on Information Infrastructures (RfII).
