Networked European Software and Services Initiative (NESSI)
Big Data Value
At ICT2013, NESSI launched a Big Data Value Call for Action. Now, we are glad to introduce the new website for the initiative bigdatavalue.eu. The purpose of this website is to provide a platform where key actors from the Data Value Chain can exchange ideas and discuss challenges and opportunities related to Big Data Value. In addition, NESSI has been selected to give a presentation on Big Data Value at the European Data Forum 2014 in Athens 19-20 March. The presentation shall describe the broad range of aspects that needs to be addressed to create a European Big Data Innovation Ecosystem. The NESSI presentation will kick-off an interactive session, which is organized by the BIG Project.
Big Data Value Manifesto: Join the Call to Action!
On 7 November at the ICT2013 conference in Vilnius NESSI called to action both public and private organisations in Europe to set up an industry-led initiative that could help coordinate efforts to build an ecosystem that puts Europe at the forefront of Big Data innovations. The Big Data Value Manifesto addresses European policy makers at all levels - together with industry and academia - to build a conducive data eco-system for fully exploiting the socio-economic potential of value generation from Big Data. The definition and implementation of a solid long-term research and innovation agenda on data is a first and necessary building block for the creation of such eco-system. For this, there is a need to delineate a research private-public collaboration on data, paving the way for a new Big Data ecosystem where Europe plays a leading role within the global context.
