Industry Commons Marketplaces FW

29th April 2021, Online-Workshop


Digital Marketplaces are multisided collaborative and trading platforms that facilitate materials innovation by easing access to otherwise disparate sources and deployments of information, expertise, software applications and data. There are multiple marketplace projects running at the moment, with only limited interaction between each other. OntoCommons aims to establish a cooperation with all the relevant stakeholders for data documentation and interoperability in industrial domains. This workshop aims to kick-start the communication between OntoCommons and the digital marketplaces, and to ensure the uptake of the OntoCommons project results.


Main discussion points:

  • Experiences of the marketplaces so far
  • Interaction between marketplaces (Global ontology framework / Common API)
  • Marketplaces Knowledge Graph (Linking marketplaces, services, datasets etc.)
