14. October 2019 – 16. October 2019 all-day
European Big Data Value Forum @ Helsinki

The European Big Data Value Forum (EBDVF) is the main event of the European Big Data and Data-Dri­ven AI Rese­arch and Inno­va­ti­on com­mu­ni­ty.

In 2017 the Big Data Value Asso­cia­ti­on (BDVA) and the European Com­mis­si­on (DG CNECT) joi­ned forces to crea­te this event fusi­on of the for­mer EDF (European Data Forum) and the BDVA Sum­mit.

In its first edi­ti­on in 2017 the EBDVF was held in Ver­sailles, Fran­ce, and it was co-orga­nis­ed by the BDVA, the European Com­mis­si­on and INRIA, a local orga­ni­zing BDVA mem­ber com­pa­ny. 900 par­ti­ci­pants and 40+ spon­sors join the events focu­sed on “Trusted AI on Smart Indus­try”.

Last year edi­ti­on, EBDVF was an offi­ci­al event of the Aus­tri­an Pre­si­den­cy of the Coun­cil of the EU and it was orga­nis­ed by the Federal Minis­try of Trans­port, Inno­va­ti­on and Tech­no­lo­gy in coope­ra­ti­on with BDVA and the European Com­mis­si­on. The event, with the the­me of “Data-Dri­ven AI for the future” attrac­ted more than 600 indus­try pro­fes­sio­nals, busi­ness deve­lo­pers, rese­ar­chers, and poli­cy­ma­kers from 40 dif­fe­rent coun­tries, to dis­cuss the chal­len­ges and oppor­tu­nities.

This year EBDVF2019 is by BDVA, in col­la­bo­ra­ti­on of the European Com­mis­si­on and VTT as the main local orga­ni­zer. The European Big Data Value Forum 2019 aims to con­ti­nue the suc­cess of pre­vious edi­ti­ons, whe­re on average every year around 700 indus­try pro­fes­sio­nals, busi­ness deve­lo­pers, rese­ar­chers, and poli­cy­ma­kers com­ing from 40 dif­fe­rent coun­tries atten­ded the event. It will be orga­nis­ed in Octo­ber and we expect 600 par­ti­ci­pants. The orga­niser com­mit­tee of this event inclu­des, in addi­ti­on to BDVA, the EC and VTT, mul­ti­ple Fin­nish indus­tri­al, Inno­va­ti­on and Rese­arch play­ers as well as inter­na­tio­nal com­pa­nies and other rese­arch insti­tu­ti­ons.

BDVA is an Indus­try-dri­ven and ful­ly self-finan­ced an inter­na­tio­nal non–for-profit orga­ni­sa­ti­on under Bel­gi­an law. BDVA has almost 200 mem­bers all over Euro­pe with a well-balan­ced com­po­si­ti­on of lar­ge and small and medi­um-sized indus­tries (over 30% of SMEs), as well as rese­arch and user orga­ni­za­ti­ons.
