Semantics 2014 LinDA Workshop

Tuesday, September 2, 2014 - 09:00
The LinDA project organizes the workshop "Linked Open Data - Improving SME Competitiveness and Generating New Value" in conjunction with the SEMANTiCS conference taking place in Leipzig (D). The LinDA workshop will be held on September 2nd, as part of the conference’s colocated events.

Although the availability of openly accessible public data has dramatically increasing and the technology and infrastructure are being developed at a fast pace, the issue of positioning SMEs in the conditions of adequately leverage Linked Open Data (LOD) to improve their competitiveness is still far from being solved. Affordability of costs and efforts for converting and renovating Public Sector Information (PSI) is still a challenge, and herefore SMEs, that are the backbone of the European economy, are lagging behind the exploitation of the full potential of LOD.
