With the usual apologies for cross-posting, we would like to introduce 
the EUCLID project (http://euclid-project.eu/).

This project, funded by the European Commission, is established to 
develop an educational curriculum, and learning materials (webinars, 
online assignments and a developing eBook) for data practitioners with a 
major emphasis on Linked Data.

While this contribution fits within a non-empty space we aim to 
distinguish ourselves in a number of ways:

* the curriculum will be defined by an open and feedback-driven process;

* the curriculum will extend beyond the basics of semantics into topics 
like mining and visualisation;

* slides, etc., produced for presentation will be Creative Commons 
licensed with no restriction (other than attribution) on adaptation and 
commercial use;

* the curriculum and materials will feature proprietary solutions only 
even-handedly (not promoting a single company's products) and will 
prominently present open source offerings.


With this in mind, EUCLID project makes two invitations.

A live webinar, with Twitter-based questions section, will be offered at 
13h00 GMT on 1st October. The project will be introduced and basic 
Semantics and Linked Data technologies presented.

As a partner of the EUCLID project, Ontotext will offer a free and 
non-proprietary training session, including EUCLID training material, on 
20th September at next week's SemTech London conference (immediately 
following the conference, at the same venue, at 17h30 until 19h30).

Ontotext will also offer a commercial training course, developing those 
themes using the OWLIM semantic database, on the following day, 21st 
September from 09h00 - this is in keeping with the aims of EUCLID to 
facilitate commercial exploitation.

Details of next weeks events are available at:
