Activity Group Meeting 40 - 27th of November

On the 27th of November BDVA organised an Activity Group meeting (AG40) focusing on the Horizon Europe Work Programme 2021-2022, key outcomes from BDVA Task Forces and general association updates.

The meeting took place on Friday the 27th of November from 9.30h to 15h and was open for participation to all BDVA Members. More than 115 BDVA Members joined the morning plenary which was focused on the presentation of the Digital Europe Programme by the European Commission, outcomes and updates from the Big Data Value PPP and Big Data Value Ecosystem (BDVe) project, pitches from new and old members and updates on the Trans Continuum Initiative (TCI).

Following the plenary, the agenda of the day included two parallel sessions organised by BDVA Task Forces and specifically by Task Force 7.SG Smart Manufacturing Industry and Task Force 6.SG Data Protection and Privacy Preserving technologies. Both sessions were dedicated to mobilise the community around future activities and topics of interest under the new Horizon Europe Programme.

In the afternoon plenary session, Task Force Leads had the chance to provide additional updates to BDVA Members and to share their views on the opportunities and key areas of the Horizon Europe programme. Future matchmaking activities will be organised based on the identified areas and calls of interest.
