Seminar Linked Data in Research and Cultural Heritage


DANS seminar on May 1, 12.00-17.30h. Meet people at the forefront of new developments in creating, keeping, and using Linked Data.

Hear more about nanopublications, self-publishing of scholarly papers, image interoperability and FAIR principles. See how Linked Data can be kept decentrally, and be subjected to distributed search.
