Projects involved
  • BlueBRIDGE (Building Research environments for fostering Innovation, Decision making, Governance and Education to support Blue growth) is an EC funded project under the H2020 framework that kicked-off on 1st Sep 2015 aiming to further develop and exploit the iMarine e-Infrastructure data services for an ecosystem approach to fisheries. Duration: 30 months (Sep 2015 - Feb 2018) http://www.bluebridge-vres.eu/
  • VRE4EIC A Europe-wide Interoperable Virtual Research Environment to Empower Multidisciplinary Research Communities and Accelerate Innovation and Collaboration. Duration: 36 months (Oct 2015 - Sep 2018) http://www.vre4eic.eu/
  • Extraction of information and analysis of organizations from particular websites-hubs for the pruposes of the EU projects LIVEWHAT and TransSOL Duration: 2 months for LiveWHAT (Jun 2015 - Jul 2015), 2 months for TransSOL (Feb 2016 - Mar 2016)
  • HELBIONET (Hellenic Network for Biodiversity Research: Construction and implementation phase for the LifeWatch Centre). The overall objective of the proposal is to develop and fulfil the vision for the Greek LifeWatch Centre and to establish is as the biodiversity Centre of Excellence for the South-Eastern Europe. Duration: 35 months (Nov 2012 - Sep 2015) http://www.helbionet.org/ https://www.lifewatchgreece.eu/
  • SCIDIP-ES (Science Data Infrastructure for Preservation - with focus on Earth Science), is an ongoing (since September 2011) initiative, aimed to upgrade CASPAR prototype components into scalable, robust e-infrastructure components to support digital preservation of all types of digital objects. It mainly focuses on Earth Science community. Duration 40 months (Sep 2011 - Dec 2014) http://www.scidip-es.eu/
  • iMarine (Data e-Infrastructure Initiative for Fisheries Management and Conservation of Marine Living Resources) an EC funded project that kicked-off on 1st Nov 2011 will establish an open data infrastructure to provide the necessary support for concrete implementation of the Ecosystem Approach to Fishery, to help define corrective actions, alleviate pressure from endangered ecosystems, assist policy makers to foster a sustainable exploitation of marine ecosystems and safeguard our oceans. Duration 35 months (Nov 2011 - Sep 2014) http://www.i-marine.eu/
  • CASPAR (Cultural, Artistic and Scientific knowledge for Preservation, Access and Retrieval). was an EU funded project whose objective was to build a pioneering framework to support the end-to-end preservation lifecycle for scientific, artistic and cultural information based on existing and emerging standards. Duration: 42 months (Apr 2006 - Sep 2009) http://www.casparpreserves.eu
Software
  • GapManager is one of the key components of CASPAR. It can aid several tasks related to the preservation of the intelligibility of digital objects. It can be considered as an advanced and extensible semantic registry of data formats. GapManager Homepage
  • Gap Identification Service has been based on GapManager. It has been developed in the context of SCIDIP-ES project. It allows (a) checking the intelligibility/ task performability, (b) identifying dependency-related risks and (c) computing intelligibility gaps. GapIdentificationService info page
  • PreScan is a tool for that can aid the automating the scanning of file systems, the extraction of embedded metadata, the transformation of these metadata to ontological instances and also supports the maintenance of such metadata. PreScan Homepage
  • MatWare is a tool for constructing domain-specific warehouses by aggregating semantic data. The main objective is to tackle the need for having integrated sets of facts regarding a particular domain. MatWare Homepage
  • LifeWatch Greece Data Services provide the users the appropriate tools to: (a) publish their datasets as Linked Data, (b) import the datasets to the LifeWatch Greece infrastructure, (c) perform information quality improvements and (d) provide the means to efficiently discover datasets. LifeWatch Greece Data Services on github
  • X3ML Engine is a tool that handles that generation of URIs and the transformation of data resources. X3ML Engine on github
  • Timer is a plugin that can be used for measuring the time when running various tasks in a java program. It is configurable to support aggregate functions over various timers and provides a lightweight solution for benchmarking applications. You can find it at Timer on github
