The BDV PPP Summit is the primary event for driving European innovation in Big Data and Artificial Intelligence. Key European industry, academia and policy-making players will gather in Riga to foster cross-sector collaboration and shape strategies for European leadership in data-driven Artificial Intelligence.

The Summit welcomes the hundreds of organisations involved in Big Data Public Private Partnership as well as all those who want to be part of the thriving European Big Data Ecosystem.

Impact empowered
by Data-Driven

    The focus of the Summit is Impact empowered by Data-driven Artificial Intelligence. It will be held on June 26-28 in the Latvian National Library, the prestigious and modern landmark of Riga, Latvia.

The first day of the Summit – BDV PPP Conference – will provide a strategic perspective on the current and future European data and AI landscape. Highlights from the European industry and research cooperation will be also presented. It will be followed by two days of thematic workshops – BDV PPP Meetup. Activity Groups, Technical and Steering Committees, as well as the BDVA General Assembly, are on the program.

We are also launching the Best Success Story award. This is an exciting opportunity for BDV PPP Projects, to tell their story on stage and to win a free pass to EBDVF2019 (October 14-16 in Helsinki, FI).
