“STIP Compass” the EC-OECD international Database of Science, Technology and Innovation was launched 26 April 2018.

A known problem for proponents of Entity Linking in Cultural Heritage collections is the poor representation of entities in popular knowledge bases such as DBpedia. This is largely due to the niche nature of the entities contained in these collections. Where such problems arise it may be possible to generate more complete knowledge bases from existing resources used by scholars who specialise in the domain of the collection in question.
