European Data Forum 2015

The European Data Forum (EDF) is an annual meeting for industry professionals, researchers, policy makers, and members if the community initiatives to discuss the challenges and opportunities of data in Europe, especially in the light of recent developments around Open Data, Linked Data and Big Data.

The European Data Forum (EDF) is a meeting for industry professionals, researchers, policymakers and members of community initiatives to discuss the challenges of Big Data and the emerging Data Economy and to develop suitable action plans for addressing these challenges. Of special focus for the EDF are Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs), since they are driving innovation and competition in many data-driven economic sectors. The range of topics discussed at the European Data Forum ranges from novel data-driven business models (e.g. data clearing houses), and technological innovations (e.g. Linked Data Web) to societal aspects (e.g. open governmental data as well as data privacy and security).
