STERNA: Technology Watch Report

2009-04-07

The function of the Technology Watch activity is to provide STERNA and other projects related to the European Digital Library with a "radar" that identifies initiatives in content/metadata enrichment and integration of heterogeneous digital collections based on Semantic Web languages and technologies.

As STERNA is an initiative of organisations from the fields of natural history and biodiversity, the radar was extended to ongoing developments n these fields. The aim was to create a wider picture of the digital environments natural science and history organisations and practitioners use to create, manage and share information resources.

This Technology Watch report has been produced by Salzburg Research in the period July to November 2008 as part of the STERNA project task 6.5: Cluster Activities, which forms part of work package 6: Network Extension and Deployment.
