The project COMSODE is an SME-driven RTD FP7 project aimed at progressing the capabilities in the field of Open Data re-use. Our concept is an answer to barriers still present in this young area: data published by various Open Data catalogues are poorly integrated; quality assessment and cleansing are seldom addressed. Costs of Open Data consumption are high and Open Data usage is still poor. COMSODE tries to change the game. The research and development project COMSODE started in October 2013 and has the following main objectives within its 24 months of duration:
(1) Create a publication platform called Open Data Node that builds on results of previous research and development in the linked data field. Its mission is to bring results from research environment into real-world for people, SMEs and other organizations to use and re-use.
(2) Create a methodology framework for easy use of technology in operating conditions of typical public bodies and rigorously tested for traceability, usability and sustainability in a public body environment.
