The OntoCommons project, an H2020 Coordination and Support Action, launched in November 2020 with three online kickoff sessions, during which more than 60 delegates from 19 partner organisations as well as Advisory Board Members discussed its objectives and actions.
OntoCommons aims to create harmonised and ontology-driven data documentation for Industry Commons, overcoming interoperability bottlenecks and facilitating data sharing and valorisation.
Over its thirty-six-month duration, the project will bring together and coordinate data documentation and standardisation activities from the most relevant EU and international stakeholders and initiatives.
“OntoCommons provides a reliable turnkey solution for industrial stakeholders to confidently use ontologies in their businesses and to share their data. In addition, OntoCommons will prove the long-awaited key role of ontology in ensuring data interoperability and will promote data-driven innovation by boosting trust in the semantics of the shared industrial data.” Hedi Karray – OntoCommons Technical Coordinator
