collaboration and dissemination infrastructure to link technology 
suppliers, integrators and leading user organizations.

PRELIDA: The Linked Data cloud has specific characteristics in terms of 
structuring, interlinkage, dynamicity and distribution that pose new 
challenges to the preservation community. PRELIDA will organise in-depth 
discussions among the linked data and preservation communities to 
identify which of these characteristics require novel solutions, and to 
develop road maps for addressing the new challenges.

PlanetData: The main aim of PlanetData is to establish an 
interdisciplinary, sustainable European community of researchers, 
helping organizations to expose their data on the Web in a useful way.

OntoHealth: This project aims to establish functionally flexible,
