Ontology is one of the enablers of the Big Data Risk Analysis project (BDRA). Ontology is the systematic classification of domain knowledge that supports the use of different databases in a meaningful way. This pa-per describes the background of ontologies and use cases within the BDRA research programme. Primarily, they are useful for search engines, text analysis and data-linkage and re-use. Also, the analysis of ontologies offers a shimmer into a new way of working in science itself.
