FP7-INFRA-2011-1.2.2: Data for e-Science

Updated: 30/11/2010

Theme: INFRA-2011-1.2.2: DATA FOR e-SCIENCE

Objectives (of concerning support sub-programme, related to domusBITae): (c) “Scientific community-driven policy development and service deployment for data generation, provenance, quality assessment, certification, curation, annotation, navigation and management so as to promote the sharing of data and the development of trust. Key issues include standardisation and the harmonisation of metadata, semantics and ontologies, in order to ensure interoperability within and across e- Infrastructures.” : for broad scientific communities; (d) "“Development and deployment of tools and techniques for the provision of advanced data services notably for data discovery, mining, visualisation and simulation.”

Deadline: NOV. 23, 2010                                                                         State: Submitted

The proposed resource center for information studies is aimed at bridging across the many research communities devoted to this broad field and social stakeholders in order to enable an interdisciplinary and overarching understanding of information in all its meaningful aspects. Since there are for information relevant grounds concerning formal-, physical-, chemical-, biological-, cognitive-, social-, technological-, ethical- and philosophical sciences, the traditional gaps and boundaries between sciences must be overcome to achieve an actual overarching understanding of information, which might be essential to cope with the global challenges of our information society. The proposed infrastructure is based on an integration of resources weaved by (1) a semantic network built upon the ongoing interdisciplinary understanding of information, and (2) a visual oriented interface based on the user experience while searching for knowledge or training; communicating with colleagues in the same or different fields; or cooperating in education, research and innovation. The set of inter-weaved resources intents to gather an open typology of scientific data qualified by the scientific community in different levels of validation, so that both novelty and rigour can be combined.
