How can trade and industry and R&D groups collaborate on common Big Data projects? This seminar will provide information about upcoming funding announcements as well as relevant initiatives in the field.

In close cooperation with R&D groups and the European Commission, European industry has entered into a Public-Private Partnership (PPP) agreement regarding Big Data Value. The objective is to provide substantial funding for research and innovation projects to strengthen European competitiveness and to make the data-driven economy a reality.

The Research Council of Norway and SINTEF (full member of the BDVA, and member of Board of Directors) are hosting a seminar on the Big Data Value Public-Private Partnership under Horizon 2020. The seminar will introduce selected projects that have been recommended for funding and provides the opportunity to meet some of the key actors in the area. Information about upcoming funding announcements and relevant initiatives in the field in Norway and abroad will be presented
