Three use cases provide test-beds for NeOn technologies to show how the research innovations can be applied in practice and exploited. These three use cases belong to two sectors with early adopter businesses, where we can achieve rapid and significant impact:
- Ontology-driven fish stock depletion assessment system is a case study led by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN (FAO), to test how semantically-oriented technologies supported by NeOn help address the information silo problem in the area of fisheries. This case study has produced a network of populated fisheries ontologies, and a prototype software that uses that network as a showcase of the possibilities of NeOn technologies.
- Supporting collaboration in pharmaceutical industry is a case study managed by ISOCO and it is concerned with an infrastructure and APIs to bridge the currently used proprietary systems for managing financial as well as product knowledge interoperability in the networks/clusters of pharmaceutical labs, companies and distributors in Spain.
