LinkedUp Veni Competition: Linked and Open Data for Education

*Submission deadline 27 June*

The LinkedUp Project invites everyone, from researchers and students, to 
developers and businesses, to join the 'Veni' competition. This is the 
first of three consecutive competitions, and we’re calling for you to 
submit a prototype or demo that uses linked and/or open data for 
educational purposes.

The total prize fund for ‘Veni’ is 5.000 EUR. However, the attractive 
prizes are only one reason to participate in the competition. It is also 
a great opportunity to work with the large, documented repository of 
linked datasets that the LinkedUp team is putting together. Participants 
will also be able to showcase their ideas and solutions to a wide 
community of researchers and practitioners: All accepted demos and 
prototypes will be presented at OKCon ( in Geneva, on 
17 September 2013.

To help participants, the LinkedUp team is providing dedicated support, 
how-to's, examples and code recipes, and has a designated developer 

We have also curated a number of high profile use cases from 
organisations such as the Commonwealth of Learning and Elsevier to serve 
as inspiration.
