    Abstract

    The more we invest in open science and research, the more we need to ensure that metadata enabling discovering and digital preservation of research material is of high-quality and semantically coherent. Still, interoperability of information systems and the lack of shared semantics, both between humans and machines, is an internationally recognised issue. In Finland we are in the process of implementing information systems and harmonising the legacy data models in the way that it makes use of the shared semantics, standards and other best practices according to the common architectural vision. This basic infrastructure for information management is built by combining terminological theory, linked data and adaptable data modelling practices. The idea of the Semantic Interoperability Model and new tools, IOW - Interoperability Workbench, supporting it are presented in the context of research and science in Finland, but the vision of the linked information components is generic.
