Slides: More on the Data Conservancy, IEEE, & Portico Project to Connect Publications, Linked Data (Project Matchmaker)

About two weeks ago (April 30, 2014) we shared a news item that a two-year research partnership from Data Conservancy, IEEE, & Portico had just received a $602,000 grant from the Sloan Foundation to, “design and prototype a data curation infrastructure that connects published research and associated data sets for the long-term benefit of researchers worldwide.”

The next day, Kate Wittenberg, Portico’s Managing Director, spoke about the project at the STM Annual Spring Conference in Washington D.C.

Embedded below are the slides from her presentation that includes info about the prototype, a work plan, an example use case, and outcomes and deliverables.
