Closer alignment and interaction between academia, enterprise and industry as a whole are essential to boost EU socio-economic growth and international competitiveness, especially in innovative fields such as ICT. Within this context, VALUE-IT is aimed at promoting market driven alignment of EU RTD, fostering innovation and accelerating adoption of Semantic Technologies for the Enterprise (STE).
Impacts derived from a successful completion of the project will be measured through more European companies offering semantic solutions, and more organisations progressively adopting those technologies.
Main outputs of the VALUE-IT Support Action to be made publicly available at the end of the project comprise:
First Year Summary of Activities
Fresh baked is the “Demand driven Mapping Report”, which brings preliminary results from our survey about present state of development, future trends and expected and market scenarios for STE. Final findings and results will be showed in our Final Report – the Value-IT Roadmap-. VALUE-IT preliminary findings show that the STE potential market in Europe will size up to €1.44B for 2014. Meanwhile, knowledge management, decision support, interoperability, searching/linking information and collaboration are all top priority needs that will drive STE implementation.
