Promoting (meta)-data standards: the European Commission ISA Programme perspective
Vassilios Peristeras, European Commission, Programme Manager
The European Commission promotes interoperability with the Interoperability Solution for European Public Administration (ISA) programme. Within the context of this programme there are activities dedicated to semantic interoperability and metadata standardization. This includes work in the area of the Asset Description Metadata Schema, the Core Vocabularies and the DCAT Application Profile. Work currently done in this area will be presented as well as cases of practical implementation of semantic technologies by the public sector in Europe.
