Research Class: Big Data Integration of Heterogeneous Data Sources in the Re-search Alps Project

Posted by & filed under News & Events.

The application of big data integration techniques in real scenarios needs to address practical issues related to the scalability of the process and the heterogeneity of data sources. The Re-search Alps Project,  a project funded by the EU Commission through the INEA Agency in the CEF Telecom framework, aims at creating an open dataset describing innovation and research organizations located  in  the  Alpine  area.  The  input of the process are  open  data  sources,  websites,  portals,  and  public  registries. The  main challenges addressed in the project and the big data integration pipeline adopted will be described in the talk. In particular, the selection of the datasets related to a domain of interest is a critical task in all data integration approaches. In the talk, a tool for exploring the content of a dataset developed in the project will be demonstrated.

The project has been presented by Francesco Guerra – principal investigator – at the University of Rjieka (Croatia).
