LEDS is a German research project, funded by the BMBF in its innovation framework “Unternehmen Region” that focuses on the development of a new generation of semantic, data-driven applications based on the Linked Data paradigm. The LEDS consortium will develop a state-of-the data integration platform based on the Linked Data paradigm. It will allow converting unstructured, structured and semi-structured data into RDF.
