We propose an approach for describing a unified view of dataand services in a peer-to-peer environment. The researchareas of data and services are usually represented with dif-ferent models and queried by different tools with differentrequirements. Our approach aims at providing the user witha “complete” knowledge (in terms of data and services) ofa domain. Our proposal is not alternative to the techniquesdeveloped for representing and querying integrated data anddiscovering services, but works in conjunction with them byimproving the user knowledge.We are experimenting the approach within the ItalianFIRB project NeP4B (Networked Peers for Business), whichaims at developing an advanced technological infrastruc-ture to enable companies to search for partners, exchangedata, negotiate and collaborate without limitations and con-straints.
