Do you want to learn how business registries from 13 countries can be linked together giving you access to interoperable and up-to-date company data, along with specifications, tools and guidance on how to increase cross-border semantic interoperability using Linked Data technologies?

The STIRData project builds on preliminary work performed under the Linked Data Showcase (LDS) pilot of the SEMIC project and presented during the SEMIC 2019 conference in Helsinki. The main objective of the LDS pilot has been to “showcase the value of Linked Data, using DCAT-AP and ISA core vocabularies, and inspire public administrations to get started in building their Linked Data environment”.

STIRData provides a set of data specifications, guidelines, and accompanying harmonisation tools for streamlining and facilitating the process of enriching and publishing company data as Linked Open Data. STIRData aims in this way at overcoming the technical barriers that hamper the reuse of open data, namely, poor quality and limited availability of open data. In addition to technical solutions, STIRData also focuses on legal issues related to the provision of open data, in particular on the issues of setting the terms of use of open data and its licensing, and on the issue of personal data protection. The aim of the project in this area is to offer a description of basic universally applicable practices. Although company data and business registries are in the focus, the overall STIRData approach, technical tools, and online services will be of a general-purpose and can be uptaken to facilitate harmonisation and reusability of open data in other domains.

During this first dissemination event, we will present how STIRData copes with the technical barriers and legal issues regarding enriching and publishing company data as Linked Open Data, and the results achieved so far in the project. We have external speakers from Interoperable Europe and DG CNECT that will talk about semantic interoperability, common European data spaces, high-value datasets.

This first dissemination event of STIRData is relevant for you who are

  • owners/providers/distributors of business registry data
  • users of business registry data
  • national/regional authorities responsible for digitalisation including open data

The event will be organised in a hybrid format, physically in Leikanger, Norway and digitally anywhere you are. If you would like to attend this event, please register on the following link.
