Freya PID graph The Freya Project is a large scale EU project to assemble identified data about scholarship.  They are building an open knowledge graph that they called a “PID graph” for persistent identifier (PID).  The VIVO community has significant experience with building knowledge graphs at the institutional level, curating and identifying data.  Learn more about Freya, and their approach here:  https://www.project-freya.eu/en/blogs/blogs/the-pid-graph
