Update on EuroDIG2020

Tuesday, March 10, 2020

As Italy is taking measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the country, and traveling is advised to be avoided until further notice, we are preparing for the possibility of holding EuroDIG2020 as an online meeting. The Secretariat, together with the partners and the hosts have agreed not to postpone or cancel the event, as our aim is to facilitate important discussions on community-sourced topics in a timely manner.

The final decision if EuroDIG can be held as a face-to-face event or fully online will be taken in a few weeks. In the meantime, we are looking into the technical circumstances and online infrastructure, while preparing the Org Teams for the scenario of an online meeting. (Sign up to become part of an Org Team on the EuroDIGWiki).

This webinar is organised by the BDVA, the BDVe project and the EC as a first event in a of events and workshops related to the EU big data platform projects that are funded under the umbrella of the European Big Data Value PPP. The aim of this webinar is to start identifying synergies and to learn how different projects will address key data collection, sharing, integration, and exploitation challenges.

This webinar is dedicated to the cluster of data platform projects that address industrial data. The projects that will present their ambitions and first insights are DataPorts, I3-Market, OpertusMundi, and TheFSM.

The webinar is organized as an introductory sequence of presentations from projects (ca. 20 minutes each), followed by a moderated Q&A session involving the webinar participants.
