The EC has launched a new Horizon Prize of EUR 2 million on Big Data Technologies!
As part of the European Commission's contribution to the Big Data Value Public Private Partnership (PPP), the EC has launched a new Horizon prize on Big Data Technologies. EUR 2 million is available for improving the performance of software for the forecasting of geospatio-temporal data (collections of time-stamped records that are linked to a geospatial location) in terms of scalability, accuracy, speed and use of computational resources.
- Registration and trialling: eligible participants need to register by the 30th of January 2018. After the closure of registrations, participants will be able to download a starting kit to try out their software in a small-scale system simulating the real contest system.
