Research activities

The main theme of my research activity is the domain of knowledge representation based on ontologies, with the aim of facilitating the interoperability between engineering sectors (e.g. urbanism, construction, manufacturing). An important facet of my work is the development of cross disciplinary approaches applicable to different industrial sectors, through the use of methods and tools suited to the representation of complex and heterogeneous data, information and knowledge : semantic integration based on ontologies, standardisation and ontology-based standards.

FLEXINET - Starting July 2013

FLEXINET is a European Union Seventh Framework Programme FP7-2013-NMP-ICT-FOF (RTD) project funded under grant agreement no 608627, which started on 1 July 2013 and runs until the end of June 2016. The project is investigating the feasibility of providing software services to support decision makers in configuration and especially rapid reconfiguration of Global Production Networks. With end-user…
