The Linked Data Benchmark Council (LDBC) was established as an outcome of the LDBC EU project funded by the European Commission within the 7th Framework Programme (Grant Agreement No. 317548). Since the end of this project, it is a an independent non-profit company self-financed by membership dues.


LDBC EU Project Objectives:

funded by the European Community's
Seventh Framework Programme FP7/2007-2014 - See more at: http://ldbcouncil.org/#sthash.zBa26PQH.dpuf

The LDBC EU project had the following two objectives:

  1. To develop new benchmarks that will spur research & industry progress in large-scale graph and RDF data management. This includes setting challenges that will lead to significant progress in:

    • scalability, storage, indexing and query optimization techniques for RDF and graph database solutions beyond Terabyte scales.

    • quantitatively and qualitatively assess different solutions for data integration,

    • computationally cheaper reasoning in RDF database systems.

  2. To establish an industry-neutral entity (the LDBC foundation) for developing graph and RDF benchmarks, auditing benchmark results, and publishing audited results.
