Intelligent Data Analytics Roadmap of Austria

The Advisory Board “Conquering DataIdentifying the Data Challenges of the Future” roadmapping project takes place in Austria from 2013 to 2014. Board member Anna Fensel, a representative of the BIG project, reports:

The aim of the "Conquering Data" project is to conduct a roadmap study in the area of Intelligent Data Analytics. It is founded by the FFG, the Austrian Research Promotion Agency. The project adheres to the FFG funding scheme "IKT der Zukunft: Daten durchdringen", which means "I.C.T. (information and communications technology) of the future: penetrating data".

To produce the roadmap, the project has reached out to the relevant stakeholders in Austria, both online and by holding three face-to-face workshops with national research and technology experts from academia and industry. The perspective of the industry and business communities has also been collected using structured interviews with representatives of multinational companies active in Austria, SMEs and selected experts from the national umbrella organizations and special interest groups.

In October 2013 in Salzburg, at one of the project's workshops, Anna Fensel gave a talk "The Semantic Web Exists. What Next?", discussing the recent developments in the fields of Semantic Web, Linked Open Data and Big Data, particularly in relation to Austria and its specifics (e.g. large number of SMEs, tourism and marketing as important economy sectors, etc.).

The final version of the study of the project "Conquering Data in Austria" has been presented at European Data Forum in 2014 in Athens, and is downloadable from the project's website: http://www.conqueringdata.com.


Workshop "Building Europe's Roadmap for Big Data in the Public Sector"

Save the Date!
BIG is organizing the second workshop on  “Building Europe’s roadmap for Big Data in the Public Sector” which will take  place  3rd July in Bratislava.
Big Data technologies are going to become increasingly relevant for Public Sector, and therefore collaboration of sector’s high  representatives to define this strategy is considered very important. By explaining their requirements and needs they can help the European ICT industry develop appropriate solutions, which can eventually benefit not only the public sector but European industry in general and citizens in particular. 
The contributions collected in the course of this workshop will be included in the resulting BIG project roadmap.
This event is one of the actions organised by the BIG European project whose mission is to assist the European Commission in the definition of its strategy for a European  data economy.

First of three Workshops on Building Europe's Roadmap for Big Data in the Public Sector in Madrid, Spain

BIG members organized a first successful workshop on "Building Europe'S roadmap for Big Data in the Public Sector" in Madrid, Spain on April 16th, 2013.

It is a vital part of the work in the Public Sector-group of big-project.eu to run workshops and interview public administrative experts in three European countries (Spain, UK and Slovakia) in order to generate different approaches and models around Big Data and Public Administration. These countries represent three different models and, in a nutshell, represent the whole European Public Administration.

This first workshop was held in Madrid and aimed at  Public Administration policy makers and senior IT – experts to explain BIG-project’s objectives. Stefano Bertolo, Project officer of BIG at the European Commission, introduced the main objectives of the BIG roadmap. Other BIG-project members gave an overview of the project and the state-of-the-art in Big Data Uses and Technologies in the public administration and Tomas Pariente Lobo presented Technological Trends in Big Data and Public Administration.

Further workshops will be run in the United Kingdom and Slovakia in the future.
