NFDI4Ing Forum: Joint web seminar on January 19th, 2021 – Ontologies in Science and Technology



Ontologies can help describe research objects, processes and results in a way that not only humans, but also machines can understand and work with. This opens up amazing possibilities for finding, using and integrating research results.

The NFDI Consortia NFDI4Ing, NFDI4Cat, and NFDI4Chem would like to invite you to a web seminar introducing the concept of Ontologies and their use in Engineering Sciences, Catalysis, and Chemistry. The web seminar is aimed at scientists with an interest in, but no prior experience with Ontologies. We will have a brief introduction to Ontologies, small hands-on exercises and interesting speakers from academia and industry. The web seminar is free of charge. The registration is required to obtain the connection details for the online videoconference.

The web seminar will be held in English. Duration: 90 minutes
