The importance of metadata and big data for open science - Big Data Europe workshop

The third Big Data Europe workshop in Societal Challenge 6 "Europe in a Changing World: Inclusive, Innovative and Reflective Societies" (SC6) was held on 11 September 2017 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

It was organised by CESSDA ERIC and the Semantic Web Company (SWC), both beneficiaries in the Big Data Europe project, as an official workshop of the SEMANTiCS2017 conference.

Attendees learned about the current state of play for big data in SC6 and within the social sciences and humanities in general and from the perspective of European official statistics. They also learned about the European Open Science agenda and the Big Data Integrator (BDI) Platform and the SC6 Pilot on "Citizen Budget on Municipal Level".

The full report and presentations are available on the Big Data Europe project website.
