October 22, 2015 @ 09:00 - 09:45
In every one of H2020 societal challenge domains Climate, Energy, Food, Agriculture & Marine Sciences, Health & Wellbeing, Transport, Security, and Social Sciences, the processing, analysis and integration of large amounts of data plays a growing role – such as the analysis of medical data, the decentralized supply with renewable energies or the optimization of traffic flow in large cities.
The session brings big Data technologists from research and industry together with ICT professionals from the H2020 societal challenge domains. Also H2020 project coordinators and collaborators in projects related to the H2020 societal domains and policy makers and EC officials from various DGs with interest in ICT related to Big Data or one of the societal challenge domains are welcome.
After a short introduction, the participants are organized in small groups. Each group sit around a table and discusses a set of questions for a amount of time under the lead of a table host. Individuals switch tables after the agreed upon amount of time, where the table hosts at the new table briefly welcomes people and fills them in on highlights of the previous discussion. Participants have, thus, multiple rounds of conversation in response to defined questions, taking the ideas from one group and adding to them, developing insights through multiple conversations with a diverse number of people. The networking session end’s in an plenary where table hosts present outcomes, participants input and follow up actions are discussed / presented.
