EC Workshop 'Interoperability and Standards in the European Data Economy'

The European Commission's Data Value Chain Unit (G.3) at DG CONNECT organised a workshop on "Interoperability and Standards in the European Data Economy" on 14th March 2016, held at the EUROFORUM Building in Luxembourg from 9:00 until 17:00.

The aim of the workshop was to identify cross-cutting issues in the standardisation landscape of the European data economy.

The workshop was intended to give the attendants the opportunity to provide input to European policy discussions on data interoperability and standards, and to exchange views and network with other stakeholders of the European data ecosystem.

The workshop aimed at sharing and discussing issues related with interoperability and standards in the European Data Economy, under an informal and open approach intended to explore key topics and action aspects that should be taken into consideration for current and future policy activities.

The workshop was based on personal invitation to potential participants whose attendance was expected to provide a broad coverage of data interoperability expertise in terms of levels of responsibilities, sector/activities, skills and experience. The very high attendance rate
confirmed the overall interest in the subject.

The key areas for discussion at the workshop were defined as:

  • (Big) Data interoperability
  • Interoperability of Big Data technologies
  • Interoperability enablers for data access, sharing and reuse"

If this needs to be changed/adapted then I need support.
