It has been proposed to have a weekly jour fixe on Thursdays 21:30 CET (a time equally (in)convenient to all our teams around the world).

You will need to be logged in to see the “add statement” link with which you can add information in the form of triple based machine readable claims — which everyone can now explore with the SPARQL data mining language, at our Query Service. All FactGrid data are CC0-licensed. You can download any search in various data formats with the aim to explore FactGrid data in other software environments or visualise searches with various tools on our site.
