  27. 27. 11Data governance strategy1. Create Incentives (for research and teaching)2. Lower the barriers (technical, economic, legal, institutional)3. Staged licensing model, ranging from confidential to Creative Commons / ODbL4. Rules for publishing scientific data and models5. Reversal of the „burden of proof“, requiring justification for data that are not published
  28. 28. 12Teaching LOD(UM)• 3 classes so far covering different aspects of LOD• Killing two birds with one stone: • teaching students modeling, semantic technologies, … • expand the group of developers building apps on top of our data• Examples: • local public transport data • LOD-based campus plan app

  31. 31. 14What is Linked Science?• Transparency and reproducibility of research• Organizing scientific data online and semantically annotated• Interlink all related resources: researchers, organizations, publications, experiments, raw data, models, methods, …• Vision: grant readers of a paper access to all these resources with the click of a button• ISWC 2o11 workshop: linkedscience.org/events/lisc2011• SWJ special issue on Linked Data for Science and Education

  35. 35. 18Conclusions• Making a whole university go LOD can be like painting the Forth Bridge.• … and it costs money.• When you talk to other departments, offer them a service.• You may need to build your own tools quite often.
  36. 36. 19What‘s missing?• It‘s the interface, stupid!• CMS → DMS• Flatten the learning curve• Document & provide examples
