Web Ontology Language (OWL)

The Web Ontology Language (OWL) is a family of knowledge representation languages for authoring ontologies. The languages are characterised by formal semantics and RDF/XML-based serializations for the Semantic Web. OWL is endorsed by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and has attracted academic, medical and commercial interest. OWL is based on the RDF specification.

Work Package (WP)

EU-Funded projects, like Linked Heritage Project, have always had precise plans comprised of interdependent work segments known as work packages. A work package is a major sub-division of the proposed project with a verifieable end-point - normally a deliverable in the overall project.  Work Packages should follow the logical phases of the implementation of the project, and include consortium management, performance monitoring and evaluation, awareness and dissemination activities, as well as technical work (See: ICT PSP Guide for Applicants 2013 – Best Practice Network. Version 7 – 21st Dec 2012).

Linked Heritage features 7 work packages (WP):

WP1 Project management and Coordination (WP Leader: ICCU, Italy)
