Elena González-Blanco, awarded an ERC Starting Grant 2015

5 Dec 2015 (All day)

We are glad to announce that a member of our Executive Committee, Elena Gónzález-Blanco, has been awarded an ERC Starting Grant 2015 for POSTDATA – POETRY STANDARDIZATION AND LINKED OPEN DATA.

POSTDATA aims at bridging the digital gap among traditional cultural assets and the growing world of data. It is based on the application of semantic web technologies to link and publish poetic datasets in a structured way in the linked data cloud. The addition of a “semantic” layer of data to existing different databases and digital resources devoted to poetry will boost interoperability among them and will let scholars develop innovative comparative studies, which were not possible to carry out before.
