Work Package 1: Semantic data integration, ontologies and mining services


The overall goal of this project area is to provide methods to semantically integrate and provide access to relevant data and metadata from selected resources (see projects 1.2 and 1.3). Original data are provided by several epidemiological and clinical trials and competence networks. Providing these data semantically necessitates the integration of raw data and analysis results together with corresponding metadata. Moreover, we will annotate metadata and instances, i.e., create links to other possibly external data resources (e.g. ontologies), and, thus, make data publicly available within the Linked Open Data (LOD) cloud ( with privacy preservations.

Project 1.2: Ontology Development

The objective of this project is the development of an ontological framework which is used to represent, integrate, and formalize various types of data, information, and knowledge. At the core of this...

Project 1.3: Annotation Linking

In this project we will enrich LHA datasets with semantic annotations based on semi-automatic annotation methods in order to achieve higher interoperability for different applications a...
