A well funded CASE studentship using linked data and semantic web technologies on food, environmental impact and provenance is available for students with good programming background.

Aston Business School and Talis Systems are collaborating to offer a well-funded CASE studentship entitled "Supporting sustainable food choices with Linked Data and the Semantic Web”. The goal of this project is to understand the various facets of energy usage throughout the food production and supply chain, and develop systems that increase the availability and transparency of this information to consumers, thereby helping to inform purchasing decisions, reduce energy usage, and increase sustainability of the sector. These systems may encompass novel data capture, analysis and mining, or visualisation aspects, or combinations of the above.

The student will be supervised by Dr. Christopher Brewster at Aston University, in close collaboration with Dr. Tom Heath at Talis Systems.

Full details are available here: http://www-users.aston.ac.uk/~brewstca/CASE_Studentship_July2010.html
Deadline is officially 31 July but we consider applicants until we find a suitable candidate. Note that this studentship is open only to UK residents.
