The Linked Data Cup awards prizes to the most promising innovation involving linked data. The Linked Data Cup invites scientists and practitioners to submit novel and innovative linked data sets and applications built on linked data technology, but also new insights that can be discovered through using linked data. 

The Linked Data Cup requires all submissions to include a specific use case and problem statement alongside a solution (triplified data set, interlinking/ cleansing approach, linked data application) that demonstrates the
usefulness of linked data or new insights from the data itself. The call is not limited to any domain or target group. We accept submissions ranging from value-added business intelligence use cases to scientific networks to the
longest tail of information domains. The only requirement is that the employment and use of linked data is well motivated and also justified.

You can use your own tool chain, which may include your own software and tools that are publicly available. We do not impose restrictions on the tools you want to use. Nevertheless, we would like to encourage you to utilize and deploy the following datasets and tools: The CODE Project (http://code-research.eu/) and the LOD2 (http://www.lod2.eu/). These two projects provide ingrediences you can use in form of 17.000 Linked Data Sets published at publicdata.eu and a set of online tools to handle, aggregate and visualise them.

The most promising application receives a 500,- Euro prize money sponsored by LOD2.
