Metadata and Discovery Protocol
This building block incorporates publishing and discovery mechanisms for data resources and services, making use of common descriptions of resources, services, and participants. Such descriptions can be both domain-agnostic and domain-specific. They should be enabled by semantic-web technologies and include linked data principles.
Enables publication of offerings centred around data resources and services, making use of common descriptions of resources, services, and participants.

Context Sensitivity Solution (CSS), comprising of the following sub-components:
- Context monitoring & extraction: - provides the main functionality for ingesting data from other smashHit components into the CSS, - monitor and structure those data according to the predefined smashHit ontology model, and - finally extract the contextual information from it.
- CSS interfaces: - provides REST API functionalities for communication with external modules, - data ingestion as for the CSS extraction result provision
The DASLOGIS project aims to develop a Dutch Logistics Data Space (DLDS): a digital virtual environment or ecosystem that enables the finding and controlled sharing of (potentially) sensitive data. It offers flexibility, extensibility, and personalization to support: sharing transaction data for operational optimization, sharing (big) data for data for data analysis, and supply chain data sharing for real-time visibility. DLDS will be based on the generic and internationally standardized IDS reference architecture model.
- Since this is a custom tool, we applied interConnect's reference architecture, providing a tool that enables matching of data representations in order to activate data exchange.
- The possibility to activate data exchange based on reasoning is currently on the road map. This feature will rely on metadata from the services. This can also be used to navigate a search space composed by the services and provided semantic descriptions.
- Build a global soil dataset from regional sources. The global dataset is referenced in many domains from carbon stock, soil fertility to nature conservation.
- Support for governments in implementing solutions to share soil data following standards for wide adoption.
Solving Consumer Consent & Data Security for Connected Car and Smart City Connected Car/Insurance Business Case: This Business Case is focused on the use of connected car data in the insurance sector. The use of such data has been restricted so far because of two main reasons: 1. Lack of trust by consumers regarding the use of their data. 2. Complexity for the consumer to provide the consent required under GDPR.
To respond to this, this Business Case aims for a simpler and automated consent process and a process where the consumer is in full control of their consent. They can manage it, withdraw it, change it themselves at any time. This Business Case also addresses the privacy aspects of consent and ensuring GDPR compliance. By making the consent process simpler, secure, and GDPR compliant, it is believed that a larger number of consumers would adopt the use of connected car data for use in risk calculations by their insurer. The current structures and consent schemes in place today require a consumer to give their consent to multiple organisations separately, which has already proven to be an unrealistic approach in working with consumers. Within smashHit, LexisNexis and Volkswagen use, among others, the Context Sensitivity Solution with the aim to automate and simplify the consent process whilst ensuring transparency and clear accountability for consumers when buying connected car insurance.
- Use standards where possible:
- for data exchange (ogcapi, odata, sparql)
- for metadata discovery (oaipmh, csw, opensearch)
- for data models (inspire, soilml , glosis, schema.org)
- for metadata content (dcat, iso19115, schema.org, datacite)
- Extend common codelists
- Make sure the metadata includes references to the type of data that is produced and/or consumed by a service. This rich metadata makes the data sharing more flexible by for example enabling automatic semantic service composition using a reasoner. This increases the reuse potential for data and makes future related use case easier to implement.
- The Knowledge Engine uses Basic Graph Patterns to describe the type of data that is being produced and/or consumed. These graph patterns are derived from the domain ontology, but they need some improvements. First of all, deriving them can be difficult. Tools to support this process are necessary to increase the adoption. Second of all, their expressive power can be increased. Note that the Knowledge Engine is research software and therefore not production-ready with respect to stability, scalability, security.
