European Open Science Agenda: Quo Vadis?

May 30, 2017 @ 15:00 - 16:00

ABSTRACT  There are nowadays some irrevocable trends implying that science will open. As regards to data, this implies that sharing instead of owning will become the default. However, there are almost no incentives (but mostly rules & obligations) to make data available and shareable. Seamless facilities for researchers to share data are much needed, and credits need to be attributed when data are re-used. Europe is developing a Cloud infrastructure where data can be shared and reused. In order to…

SC4 Hangout: Empowering Mobility Management with Big Data

June 14, 2017 @ 11:30 - 12:30

The launch of BigDataEurope’s open-source Integrator Platform earlier this month was the culmination of over two years’ development and testing. The Big Data Europe Integrator Platform (BDI) allows a unified view of heterogeneous data for more efficient processing, analysis and integration without having to worry about native installations of a variety of tools for data processing at scale. BDI has exciting implications for application in the transport and mobility sector. In a webinar entitled ‘Empowering Mobility Management with Big Data’…

SC5 hangout: Inverse estimation of atmospheric pollutant emissions using Big Data technologies

July 4, 2017 @ 11:00 - 12:00

During this online hangout, we will present the 2nd BDE SC5 pilot, which is a methodology for rapid estimation of the location of an unknown source emitting a hazardous substance in the atmosphere. The pilot is an alternative to the classic inverse “source-term” estimation methods that are rather computationally slow to be applied at the first stages of emergency management. The pilot is based on prior analysis of multiple years of weather data, of corresponding calculated atmospheric dispersion from a…

SC2 hangout – Big Data Europe Platform presented to the agricultural research environment

November 6, 2017 @ 09:00 - 10:00

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…
