Research Themes

DERI's Linked Data Research Centre (LiDRC) is organised into research themes addressing certain aspects of Linked Data publishing and consuming. You can find the current research themes in the table below or have a look at the LiDRC Lab, a collection of tools and services we are working on.

In the publishing research theme we are focusing on the creation, interlinking and deployment of linked data.
Closely related to the publishing theme is the discovery research theme, which is about finding and using linked data.
In the linked data application domains research theme we investigate specific content domains (such as statistics, multimedia, etc.) and how to build applications on top of linked data.
