The European Commission has joined forces with European industry (large players and SMEs), researchers and academia in a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) in order to cooperate in data-related research and innovation, enhance community building around data and to set the grounds for a thriving data-driven economy in Europe.
The Big Data Value Association (BDVA) is the private counterpart to the EU Commission to implement the BDV PPP programme (Big Data Value PPP)
A contractual arrangement on the cPPP was signed on 13 October 2014.
Industry and academia have identified R&I priorities in a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA). The SRIA has been developed by the Big Data Value Association (BDVA). BDVA provides an annual update following a well-defined process that ensures transparency. The update process is based on 3 major streams: Engagement with the Community, Expert-based investigation, and Compilation of the BDV SRIA Updates.
The PPP is being implemented in 2016-2020 through calls of proposals from the ICT LEIT (Industrial Leadership) part of the Horizon 2020 work programme.
The implementation of the BDV PPP has just started with the first project portfolio starting December 2016 and January 2017. Find more information about the projects here.
