The Big Data Value Association celebrated its 10th General Assembly last June 21 in Brussels. Among other important topics, the BDVA members were called to elect and renew some of the members of its Board of Directors, and to re-elect one of the Vice Presidents. We very much welcome Yannick Legré (EGI Foundation) and Simon Scerri (Fraunhofer IAIS) as new appointed directors of BDVA and we are glad to confirm the renewal of a 2-year mandate for Milan Petkovic (Philips, also Vice-President of BDVA), Andrejs Vasiljevs (Tilde), and Henk Jan Vink (TNO).

We are also happy to announce that Edward Curry (Insight) was re-elected BDVA Vice-president (Research/Academia) for a renewed period of 2 more years.
