Part of this will be the ontological annotation of OpenRiskNet Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) as used on their cloud.

The OpenRiskNet website was first released in June 2017, to enable presentation of project work to its stakeholders (end-users and developers), the scientific community and to the general public. The website contains information on project objectives and partners, detailed information on the Associate Partner Programme and a list of dissemination activities (events, publications and other resources). On the technical development side, the website provides information on case studies and associated use cases.
