Evaluation of concept for ontology based information management

Knowledge Agency has been contracted by Vinnova, Sweden’s government agency for innovation, to assess and evaluate a novel concept for an ontology based information management platform. The concept introduces a way to manage knowledge in an ontological format which is linked to actual data. This allows efficient discovery of data and provides the ability to anonymise it and for a data owner to control who has access to the data, irrespectively of where it is stored. The objective is to determine whether the concept can be applied at a national or even global level, starting from a practical example application in the medicine informatics area.
