Hi Melvin,

You might be interested in the LinkedUp project 
(http://linkedup-project.eu) which aims to push forward the exploitation 
of public, open data available on the Web, in particular by educational 
institutions and organizations. One of the ways it is doing this is 
through 3 competitions - which make up the LinkedUp challenge 
(http://linkedup-challenge.org). Hopefully some interesting open source 
tools will come out of those competitions. The project is EU funded but 
the competition is open to all.

There is a developer blog available (http://developer.linkedin.com/blog) 
and also a catalogue of data sets 
(http://data.linkededucation.org/linkedup/catalog/).

Thanks

Marieke
