Abstract: PlanetData is a Network of Excellence funded by the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme FP7/2007-2013. The aim of PlanetData is to push forward the state-of-the-art in large-scale data management and its application to the creation of useful, open data sets. This is motivated by i) the increasing reliance of business on large public data ii) the uptake of open data principles in many vertical sectors iii) the need of research communities to make sense out of large amounts of scientificc data, to describe and expose this data in ways that encourage and enable collaboration between interested parties.
