(Thanks for the name check, Michael.)
(By the way, I think the dotAC skin on the RKB Infrastructure (http://dotac.info/explorer) is probably a better entry than the old RKBExplorer.)

The ontology the RKB Infrastructure started using was http://www.aktors.org/ontology/portal,
    <dc:creator>AKT Project</dc:creator>
    <dc:creator>Enrico Motta (OCML version)</dc:creator>
    <dc:creator>Nick Gibbins (OWL translation)</dc:creator>
Which has more structure than the RKB actually uses, but I suspect is still not right for you.
(The RKB has been augmented to accept quite a lot more relevant ontologies over the years, of course.)

In fact, Daniel, while your team are doing your technology choice, maybe you could do some alignment of the different things you find?
It might prove really useful for me :-)
And once you have chosen and published the data, if you can tell me some alignments it will make it easier for me to consume your data in the RKB Infrastructure.
