The goal of the OKKAM project is to enable the Web of Entities, a global digital space for publishing and managing information about entities, where every entity is uniquely identified. Links between these entities can be explicitly specified and exploited in a variety of scenarios. Compared to the WWW, the main differences are that the domain of entities is extended beyond the realm of digital resources to include objects in other realms like products, organizations, associations, countries, events, publications, hotels or people; and the links between entities are extended beyond hyperlinks to include virtually any type of relation. The OKKAM project presents a strategy and an effective work plan to build the pillars of this Web of Entities, not only from a technical point of view, but also from a social, organizational and business-oriented perspective.
