The presentation will outline what ontologies are and how they can be used to achieve interoperability. The basis of the EMMO (Elemental Multiperspective Materials Ontology) and how it is constructed to be particularly useful for the sciences will the explained. Examples of domain ontologies will be shown with examples on how they are used. Development of domain ontologies require good collaboration between domain experts and ontologists, and we encourage suggestions for needs and collaborations with fields related to DigiPro and beyond.

Presented by Jesper Friis, Senior Research Scientist, and Francesca Lønstad Bleken, Research Scientist, SINTEF Industry
