PlanetData Programs - Call 1 Announcement


PlanetData ( <http://www.planet-data.eu> www.planet-data.eu) is an EU
co-funded Network of Excellence
creating a durable community of academic and industrial partners. This
community is supported in conducting research in the large-scale data
management area through the provision of data sets and access to tailored
data management technology. It benefits from a comprehensive program of
training, dissemination, standardization, and networking activities,
intended to strengthen existing collaborations and establish new ones, to
educate organizations in key questions related to open data exposure, and
to transfer research results towards industry.

During the duration of PlanetData (2010-2014) the consortium issues open
calls to extend its expertise and to invite new partners to carry out
certain tasks within the project. Selected partner(s) will be eligible for
funding of research activities.
