On Tuesday 15th and Wednesday 16th of March, the BDVA community reunited over a two days Activity Group meeting. The 49th AG meeting looked outside the borders of the Big Data research & innovation community and brought inputs from different fields that impact the Big Data ecosystem. The meeting also hosted the European Commission to present recent regulatory developments, and the Data Spaces Business Alliance to open its doors for a wider audience.
On the first day, BDVA met with EuroCC, the network of competence centres on High-Performance Computing (HPC) together with the EUHubs4Data project (federation of i-Spaces). Also the EuroHPC Joint Undertaking was present, of which BDVA is a member. The workshop connects the data, AI and HPC ecosystems, found synergies and addressed common topics and challenges.
