The European Network of National Big Data Centers of Excellence has launched their webpage. The objective of this network is to collect best practices and key achievements of each center, define big challenges, meet on regular basis, and align with other European initiatives, with the ultimate goal of defining the data-driven future of Europe.
The centers work together on major pillars of Big Data: Education, Systems, Analytics, Visualization, and Business Models. The main goals of this Network of CoEs are the following:
Create more transparency and visibility of cutting edge Big Data research in Europe.
Increase exchange and collaboration between national CoEs both in research and education.
Foster matchmaking between industrial and research programs and initiatives.
Share best practices and lessons learned, identify synergies, and learn from each other.
Keep informed in all aspects of big data by a big data network in Europe.
The webpage is regularly updated.
