STELAR will develop a Knowledge Lake Management System (KLMS) to support FAIR and AI-ready data, (semi-)automatically turning a raw data lake into a knowledge lake. This is achieved by:

Enhancing the data lake with a knowledge layer:

  • a Data Catalog offering automatically enhanced metadata for the data assets in the lake
  • a Knowledge Graph that semantically describes and interlinks these data assets using suitable domain ontologies and vocabularies

A set of data management tools and workflows for:

  • data discovery and quality management
  • data linking and alignment
  • data annotation and synthetic data generation

The KLMS will:

  • enable finding and selecting relevant data sources
  • facilitate configuring and tuning the data management tools
  • support designing, executing and monitoring end-to-end data processing workflows
  • treat geospatial data, time series, and text as first-class citizens
  • be pilot tested in use cases relevant to the agri-food sector

STELAR by numbers

  •          9 partners from 5 European countries
  •          3 pilots conducted, covering: (1) Risk prevention in food supply lines, (2) Early crop growth predictions, (3) Timely precision farming interventions
  •          >50% reduction of time, energy and cost by using the STELAR KLMS
  •          25 industry partnerships

Our role in the project

As Dissemination, Exploitation and Communication (DEC) leaders we will:
1. Set up a clear and strategic Dissemination, Exploitation and Communication (DEC) Plan;
2. Build a strong visual identity and communication strategy for smooth stakeholder engagement;
3. Build synergies with European industrial associations, DIHs, data exchange initiatives and movements to amplify our growth opportunities;
4. Craft a roadmap for market uptake and sustainability of our results
Furthermore, as a leader of task 1.1 we will document a set of diverse use cases, extract requirements which will be used to elaborate on the KPIs for evaluating the KLMS during the pilots; and as a leader of task 5.1 we will conduct pilot specification and preparation activities.
