Workshop on Big Data in SC5 Climate Action & Environment

November 6 - November 7


We are pleased to invite you to a two-day even entitled “Collective Awareness Platform on
Data Needs, Citizens’ Participation and Big Regulatory Society Challenges:
A Worldwide Exploitation of Emerging Technologies” to take place on 6-7 November 2017 in Brussels, co-organised by BDE and JRC-Ispra.

The BDE SC5 workshop on data-scientific methods for inverse source-term estimation during nuclear or radiological events will take place on the 1st day of the event.

Due to the event taking place at the EC CDMA Building, it is important to register before showing up.
