We are pleased to officially launch the BigDataEurope project which aims at developing a Big Data platform based on requirements identified with stakeholders from the seven H2020 societal challenges: Climate, Energy, Health, Transport, Social sciences, Food and Security. The consortium will engage with these communities to identify their big data technology needs, to design and realise the required ICT infrastructure and support the use and deployment of the platform.
BigDataEurope is a new project within the EU’s “Horizon 2020” framework program whose agenda is to build a knowledge- and innovation-based society so to strengthen the competitiveness of Europe’s economy. BigDataEurope started on 1st January 2015, and will last 3 years.
To mark the launch of this new European project, all the BigDataEurope partners invite interested stakeholders to participate in their public launch event, to be held on 27 February 2015, in Brussels, Belgium.
