The objective of this webinar is to tailor the presentation of the BDI platform to The environmental research institute of Alterra as an example of an advanced European national agricultural research institution to understand if the platform can respond to the needs of such an organization.
FAO’s role in the project is to represent the needs of the agri-food community and finally to validate the platform against such needs. The first workshop in 2015 demonstrated that such needs are very varied and not homogeneous: each type of institution has specific big data challenges, so ideally the platform should be validated individually with each different type of organization.
Alterra represents a typical stakeholder of the agricultural research environment in Europe and already presented their challenges in terms of big data management at the first BDE workshop in Paris in Sept 2015.
It will take place on 6th November at 9.00am CET and it will take up to one hour.
Dr. Hajira Jabeen will present the Big Data Europe Integrator platform, the architecture and the platform goals.
Maritina Stavrakaki (AgroKnow) will introduce the use case pilot demonstrator – VITIS, that is being developed by Agroknow with support from the BDE Horizon 2020 project.
