The enRichMyData kick-off was held in Oslo, Norway on the 3rd of October, 2022. Several European and international organisations, covering large corporations, SMEs, research centres and universities are joining forces to develop new methods and tools for effective and efficient management of data enrichment processes in the recently started enRichMyData project. The initiative is funded under Horizon Europe Programme for research and innovation and will run for three years between 2022-2023.
The overall vision of the enRichMyData project is the creation of a novel paradigm for building rich, high-quality, valuable, and FAIR-compliant datasets to feed downstream Big Data Analytics and AI applications in the context of data-sharing ecosystems, such as data spaces.
The main goal of the EnrichMyData project is to develop an open software toolbox – the enRichMyData toolbox – comprising practical, robust and scalable components to support organisations in enriching their data with reference data they may have limited knowledge of, as well as supporting data providers in making their data reusable and available in data enrichment processes.
The enRichMyData project is coordinated by SINTEF AS (Norway), one of European’s largest independent research organisations. The project partners include companies such as Philips (The Netherlands) and Bosch (Germany), dedicated to engineering and manufacturing; Speed Network (Estonia), a provider of procurement data; JOT Internet Media (Spain), a digital marketing company; CS Group (Romania), a software service company; Expert AI (Italy), a technology company specialized in natural language understanding; and Ontotext (Bulgaria), a semantic technology company. They will have the full support of the research partners that, in addition to SINTEF, include the University of Milano-Bicocca (Italy), Jozef Stefan Institute (Slovenia), University of Copenhagen (Denmark), GATE Institute (Bulgaria), and BGRIMM Technology Group (China).
