European Data Forum
November 16, 2015 @ 12:00 am - November 17, 2015 @ 12:00 am UTC+0
The European Data Forum (EDF) is an annual meeting for industry professionals, researchers, policy makers, and members if the community initiatives to discuss the challenges and opportunities of data in Europe, especially in the light of recent developments around Open Data, Linked Data and Big Data. The forum balances technical (the technology and infrastructure needed to master the volume, heterogeneity and dynamicity of today’s data), application (new products and services that are now possible due to Open Data, Linked Data and Big Data), and socio-economic issues (social impact, legal issues, government policies and regulations, business models, commercialization and innovation in this new era).
Our aim is to bring together all stakeholders involved in the data value chain to exchange ideas that address the above challenges and opportunities, in order to strengthen the European data economy and its positioning worldwide. Discussions at EDF provide input to research, development, and policy activities at the European Commission (e.g., Horizon 2020) and those of the EU member states, with the aim of influencing the development of the new European data economy.
