SLIPO at the Big Data Value Meet-up in Sofia

Between the 14th and 16th of May, SLIPO was represented at the Big Data Value Meet-up organized by BigData Value PPP in collaboration with a local partner in the Bulgarian capital. The first two days featured workshops and parallel interactive sessions for PPP projects. By the third day, open day, which involved keynotes, panel discussions and speeches by Bulgarian representatives and EC, SLIPO was able to gather new information about BDV supportive activities, collaboration opportunities, to give feedback and share challenges. SLIPO was present all three days, attending the parallel sessions, especially those dedicated to data sharing, data analytics and AI and their business impact and various use cases among different industries.

We were also pleased to get to know the local community represented by both industry and academia, who, for their part, also actively imparted knowledge, the status quo on activities and relevant initiatives such those from the Center of Excellence GATE, and the Bulgarian Data science society.

SLIPO, as a Horizon 2020 Innovation Action and PPP Project is looking forward to the upcoming get- together at the European Big Data Value Forum in November 2018 in Vienna.
