EDF2014 – The meeting place of the 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 the Data Economy in Europe.
The next EDF will be held in Athens, Greece on March 19-20, 2014. The program will consist of presentations and networking sessions by industry leaders, academics, policy makers, and community organisers, and will cover a diverse range of topics, including research and technology development, training and knowledge transfer, and commercialisation.
The Data Economy, an emergent field of business based on the publication and use of data, is a key enabler for sustainable growth in Europe. Initiated by technological leaps, such as Big Data and Linked Data, and supported by several EU policy actions, such as Open Data and the Digital Agenda, the Data Economy engages a variety of stakeholders from across thematic domains and disciplines in the data value chain.
