European Data Forum 2013

Discussing the challenges and opportunities of data intense sectors in an emerging European data economy

The European Data Forum (EDF) is an annual meeting place for industry, researchers, policy makers, and community initiatives to discuss the challenges and opportunities of (Big) Data in Europe.

What do the following organisations have in common?

An oil company dealing with complex engineering technologies and strong marketing intelligence needs, a publisher establishing new innovative content businesses, an NGO building global awareness on sustainable development or a national government enabling more transparency and realising cost savings at the same time.

All of these organisations are working in data intense sectors and thereby facing the challenge of how to deal with an efficient and sustainable (big) data management as a key factor for success as well as competitive advantage!

‘Data has swept into every industry and business function and is now an important factor of production, alongside labour and capital.’ a study by the McKinsey Global Institute stated in May 2011 (see: study details). ‘The amount of data in our world has been exploding, and analysing large datasets — so-called big data — will become a key basis of competition, underpinning new waves of productivity growth, innovation, and consumer surplus.’

These challenges and opportunities around big data management, the single steps of the data value chain, technological innovations and innovative business models, as well as the legal framework for a sustainable European data economy will be discussed at the European Data Forum 2013, the meeting place for a growing EU-wide Data Community.

The Event will take place on 09-10 April 2013 in Dublin, Ireland (at the Croke Park Conference Centre), as an associated event of the Irish Presidency of the Council of the EU.
