This blog, which is maintained under the aegis of the Concept Web Alliance, is devoted to the Concept Web – a dynamic, interactive fabric of concepts and their relationships. The Concept Web is constructed from, inter alia, research literature, Internet databases and other web sites together with off-line resources. The aim of creating the Concept Web is to remove both redundancy and ambiguity from available knowledge in order to help deal with information overload, to semantically ‘connect’ concepts, and so to maximize the potential for knowledge discovery.


The start up of the CWA is financially supported by NBIC, the Netherlands Bioinformatics Centre.
