@Sebastian: Il would be great! I'll follow this project closely, just as I'm already following your papers <https://content.iospress.com/articles/semantic-web/sw277>. And it is precisely because I know that there is a desire for "rapprochement" on both sides that I asked why there is absolutely nothing in Wikidata that links to DBpedia (or Yago), whereas DBpedia contains a lot of owl: sameAs to Wikidata. All this must have been discussed somewhere I suppose. Still, I do not even find a property proposal for "DBpedia link".

Thanks, Ali (who volunteered to do biweekly Wikidata-DBpedia extractions) and Dimitris should get most of the credit for the paper.

We as DBpedia would really like to contribute more to Wikidata, but all developers are busy with coding DBpedia improvements and the community is more concerned with their own interests and we didn't find a volunteer who committed to focusing on closing the gaps between the projects (it is quite a lot of work, but worth it). Hence the application for the developer in GlobalFactSync[1] as we really need someone to focus on porting technologies to Wikimedia and transition the core data from Wikipedia to Wikidata via DBpedia as a transparent layer.
