European Data Forum 2012 - The New Meeting Point for the European Data Economy!

The European Data Forum 2012 (EDF2012) - taking place on 6-7 June 2012 at the Copenhagen Business School (CBS), Denmark - is a meeting place for industry, research, policy-makers and community initiatives to discuss the challenges of Big Data and the emerging Data Economy, as well as to develop suitable action plans for addressing these challenges.

On 6-7th June 2012 in Copenhagen, Denmark, for the first time ever, the brand-new forum for the European data economy will be launched, discussing issues along the data value chain, open data and big data! Organised by the European Commission and four partially EU-funded projects, the European Data Forum 2012 will be established as an annual conference discussing relevant data topics for the future!

Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (SMEs) will be of particular focus within the EDF2012, as they are driving innovation and competition in many data-driven economic sectors. Topics discussed at the European Data Forum range from novel, data-driven business models (e.g. data clearing houses), to technological innovations (e.g. Linked Data Web) and societal aspects (e.g. open government data as well as data privacy and security).
