Big Data Europe was a proud gold sponsor of this year’s European Big Data Value Forum (EBDVF17) which took place in Versailles, during the 21st and 23rd of November. Numerous BDE partners were present and showcased the project’s results during various programme sessions. At the same time a wide range of demos was presented at the BDE booth.
Being a key European event for industry professionals, business developers, researchers, and policy makers, EBDVF17 provided the most appropriate common ground to discuss the challenges and opportunities of the European data economy and data-driven innovation in Europe. The high-level attendees were ideal contact partners with regard to further establishing and developing the take-up and exploitation actions with regard to the outputs of the BDE project. As a widely known flagship project, BDE attracted a great number of stakeholders to its booth. Many of them had already watched the BDI webinars and were eager to discuss further collaborations beyond the project’s duration, ensuring thus to an even greater extent the set sustainability goals of the project.
