Big Data Value Meet-up Sofia


The European Big Data Value community has been gathered on the 16th of May in Sofia, Bulgaria. An event organised by the Big Data Value PPP, with the twofold objective of strengthening collaborations among community members and increasing the visibility and awareness about the PPP in East Europe in general, and Bulgaria in particular.

The event, which was preceded by two days of workshops and parallel sessions for PPP projects and BDVA members, has been involved relevant keynotes from Bulgaria and the EC.

The agenda has combined keynotes and speeches from official Bulgarian representatives, members of the European Commission and industrial players. You can find the detailed agenda here. The other two days (14th – 15th) were organised around workshops

In order to help us to improve future editions of the Meetup, we encourage you to complete this survey where you can provide us feedback on the most significant aspects of the event.

The pictures about the event are published in the BDV flickr.


During the 16th, we have had the pleasure of having a welcoming video-speech from Commissioner Mariya Gabriel stating great European ambitions for Artificial Intelligence and Big Data in Europe.

The video is available on YouTube, and you can find the English translation of the speech here.
