Labelled i-Spaces

The Big Data Value Association advertised and granted a label for European Innovation Spaces to help drive forward Big Data adoption across all domains within European industry. Every year, existing hubs can obtain a label as a “BDVA i-Space”, after an evaluation process based on a comprehensive criterion catalogue. The new label is granted in three grades: Bronze, Silver and Gold. These grades are aligned with the maturity and potential impact of the candidates in five main domains: Excellence of infrastructure, Quality of Services, Projects and sectors, Impact to Eco System and Business model.

At the BDVA Big Data Summit in Valencia (November 2016), the first five i-Spaces were awarded this new label. BDVA i-Space Silver Labels have been granted to the Know-Center (Austria), Smart Data innovation Lab - SDIL (Germany), SICS ICE (Sweden), TeraLab (France). A Bronze Label was granted to EURECAT (Spain).
