The European Data Forum 2016 will take place on June 29th-30th, 2016 at the Evoluon, Eindhoven, the Netherlands. This year’s theme is:

Scaling up the European data economy.

The European Data Forum (EDF) is one of the key European events for industry professionals, researchers, policy makers, and members of community initiatives to discuss the challenges and opportunities of data-driven innovation in Europe. The Forum will address all facets of data-driven innovation: infrastructure, tools, applications (including, new products and services reaching out to multilingual European audiences) as well as societal and economic impact.

This event is relevant for all stakeholders involved in the data value chain: engage with a carefully selected mix of cutting-edge innovative industrial applications of Big Data technologies, to upcoming innovation breakthroughs. Be on top of on-going policy debates and get inspired by future-looking talks. Ideas exchanged at the European Data Forum have impact on the design of future research challenges and policy decisions both at the EU and Member State level.
