"In today’s globalised world, the transition to a digital economy is essential for Europe competitive edge, economic growth and jobs. The digital revolution is not a dream for the future, it is happening now, transforming economy and society. The key challenge for Europe is to fully capture the opportunity and value of digitization." Dr.-Ing. Jürgen Müller, BDVA President
BDVA Valencia Summit held a new meeting of the Network of Big Data Centers of Excellence in Europe.
The main focus of the Center of Excellence (CoE) Network will be research topics, and how they can be transferred into relevant industries.
The initiators of this bold initiative already decided on the next steps: collect best practices and key achievements of each center, define big challenges, meet on regular basis, and align with other European initiatives.
BDVA Summit 2016 will take place in Valencia from November 30th to December 2nd.
With over 300 attendees from Industry, Academia, Public Administration, data owners and users, our summit is a key occasion to meet and engage with Big Data players in Europe, and to influence the development of the European Big Data Ecosystem.
The Big Data Value Association advertised and granted a label for European Innovation Spaces to help drive forward Big Data adoption across all domains within European industry. At the BDVA Big Data Summit in Valencia, the first five i-Spaces were awarded with this new label.
European Innovation Spaces (BDVA i-Spaces) are one of the four pillars of the BDVA Strategic Research & Innovation Agenda. Innovation Spaces are cross-organizational and cross-sectorial environments
allowing challenges to be addressed in an interdisciplinary way and serving as European hubs for Big Data research and innovation activities.
On Friday, 2nd December 2016, in the context of BDVA Valencia Summit, the Commission will present the topics related to Big Data Value PPP for the next call in April 2017:
- ICT-14: Big Data PPP: Cross-sectorial and cross-lingual data integration and experimentation
- ICT-15: Big Data PPP: Large Scale Pilot actions in sectors best benefitting from data-driven innovation
- ICT-16: Big Data PPP: research addressing main technology challenges of the data economy
- ICT-17 b: Big data PPP: Support, Industrial Skills, Benchmarking and evaluation
There will be the opportunity to present your ideas and brokerage with other people.
The BDVA Secretary General, accompanied by representatives from Fraunhofer, Siemens and ATOS took part in a follow-up working group on Digitising European Industry on October 21st. A common BDVA approach to establishing a European Industrial Data Platform was communicated, together with the presentation of individual BDVA member initiatives including the Industrial Data Space (Fraunhofer) and (MindSphere) Siemens.
Big Data PPP Information and Networking Days 2017, organised by the Unit Data Policy and Innovation (CNECT G1), will take place on 17 and 18 January 2017 in Luxembourg Congrès in Luxembourg.
The BigDataEurope project's upcoming Webinar is featuring one of Apache Flink’s biggest committers, Kostas Tzoumas, CEO of dataArtisans. Apache Flink is an open source framework for distributed stream and batch data processing that provides an execution environment for transforming unbounded data sets where the time dimension is critical. That makes it ideal for working in areas like transport and Internet of Things where data comes as streams from sensors and where the value of that data is highly time-dependent.
