What will this webinar cover?

This webinar is dedicated to the phases of the research lifecycle “Carry out Research” & “Analyse Data” in the context of a research infrastructure. Carrying out research and analysis in the context of a research infrastructure requires a change in approach to research, where the harmonization of data and the ability to access and deploy interoperable services is crucial. This webinar will give an overview of the necessary elements required to set up a sustainable research infrastructure with regards to the management of data and services. It will clarify the technical and epistemical challenges faced in attempting to establish a successful and sustainable research infrastructure. In so doing, it will outline aspects of data sharing through research infrastructures, such as processing and contributing data, using and applying ontologies, questions of interoperability, relevant tools and Virtual Research Environments (VREs). This webinar will cross-link to materials developed within PARTHENOS and by the PARTHENOS Cluster Partners and will, by way of example, refer to efforts undertaken to establish different VREs for the PARTHENOS project.

Learning outcomes:

On successful completion of the Webinar, the participants will be able to:

  • understand basic underlying technical concepts of working with data with and within Research Infrastructures
  • consider the theory and practice of using ontologies
  • demonstrate an understanding of interoperability issues, identifying relevant tools and Virtual Research Environments

About the trainers:

George Bruseker (Centre for Cultural Information – Institute for Computer Science – Foundation for Research and Technology Hellas [FORTH])

George BrusekerDr. George Bruseker studied philosophy at the University of Athens, obtaining his PhD in 2011. He has worked in the cultural heritage sector as an informatics specialist for over ten years, holding positions at the British School at Athens and Qatar Museums. In 2015, he took up the position of Experienced Research with the Initial Training Network – Digital Cultural Heritage. Presently, George works on the Parthenos project at ICS-FORTH developing and supporting the semantic model and overall architecture for data integration in that project. He is a standing member of the CIDOC CRM SIG which maintains the ISO21127:2014 standard. His research interests are in conceptual modelling, data integration and knowledge provenance.

Carlo Meghini (Institute of Information Science and Technologies, Italian National Research Council [CNR])

Carlo MeghiniDr. Carlo Meghini is prime researcher at the Institute of Information Science and Technologies of the Italian National Research Council, and the head of the Digital Libraries group in the NeMIS Lab of ISTI. His area of research includes Digital Narratives, Digital Libraries and Research Infrastructures for the Humanities. He has participated to more than 20 European projects since 1986, coordinating the CSA PRELIDA on the preservation of Linked Data. From 2007, he has been involved in the making of the European digital library Europeana, taking care of the scientific aspects of the project. Starting with the ARIADNE project, he is involved in the research and development of research infrastructures, bringing his expertise and competence into this relatively new area. He teaches the Semantic Web course at the Master Degree in Computer Science at the University of Pisa. He has published more than 100 scientific papers in international journals, books and conferences.
