A Note From The Project Lead

We are excited that the BigDataEurope project is getting up to speed. Our technical group is working on the draft architecture for the BigDataEurope technology platform, which will use an industry leading Big Data software distribution as a basis and add semantification features and additional components required for addressing the societal challenges. Also, we started organizing the first stakeholder workshops having taken place last week in Brussels and two more workshops coming in two weeks time. 
Sincerely Sören Auer

Participate in our Online Survey

The BigDataEurope project has set up a survey identifying current and future challenges for Big data and data management in the seven H2020 societal challenge topics. BigDataEurope project asks for participation starting now until the end of June.

Two Dedicated Societal Workshops on Big Data in June

After the successful workshop on Health (SC1) in May we will holding two other workshops on big data and data management before the summer. These Workshops provide key opportunities for stakeholders in the specific sector to influence the design of BigDataEurope’s Big Data platform and enjoy the benefits that the platform will deliver.
Climate action, environment, resource efficiency and raw materials
June 15, Brussels
Climate research is heavily based upon Observational data and computer models that simulate the earth’s climate for time periods spanning several decades. Repeated climate simulations are performed considering different scenarios of world-wide emissions of anthropogenic and natural pollutants that affect the climate. Thus, Big Data and data management is a challenge for the organizations engaged in climate research and services and involves data storage, analysis and visualization tasks for various applications.

Secure, Clean and Efficient energy
June 16, Brussels
The energy domain is extensive and multidisciplinary and within BigDataEurope, the electricity production, transmission and distribution, renewables, distributed production and smart grids, energy saving and energy policy planning are considered. The need of secure and cost effective power supply requires the exploitation of the latest available technological advances in data management and processing and this comprises the main challenge for big data application in the field.
