Lifecycle Support for Networked Ontologies

NeOn is a 4-year long flagship project funded by the European Commision's 6th Framework Programme. The Open University is its co-ordinator, and the project includes leading institutions from Europe in the area of knowledge modelling and ontologies.

NeOn aims to dramatically improve the support for ontology engineering, by developing both a reference architecture and a concrete toolkit supporting the ontology engineering lifecycle. Specifically, NeOn aims to be the foundational platform for the construction of very large semantic applications by facilitating the creation, management and evolution of networks of ontologies. It is envisaged that this approach will dramatically improve the cost-effectiveness of large-scale ontology engineering, by removing the need for a complete integration of pre-existing ontologies in an application, which is always expensive and often unfeasible.

The envisaged networks of ontologies will rely on localized integration mechanisms, which will be able to support local, 'good enough' notions of consistency, context and collaboration in the open networked environment.
