BDVA input to the Framework Programme 9

BDVA submitted its position paper concerning the upcoming Framework Programme 9 (FP9).
A strong data economy is emerging in Europe with large companies and SMEs clearly seeing the fundamental potential of Big Data Value and AI for causing disruptive change in markets and business models. Digital platforms dominate value creation across all sectors and they are at the heart of the digital economy. Business dynamics are changing and usage of data will define global competitiveness. To secure its (industrial) prosperity, Europe needs industrial leadership in Data Platforms and AI Platforms, and in the fields of technology that are key for the development and operations of Data / AI platforms.
