EBDVF 2021: Digital transformation powered by Data and AI - Join us on Nov 29 - Dec 3!

European Big Data Value Forum (EBDVF) 2021 will take place from the 29th of November to the 3rd of December. This year, we are building a “hybrid” event – this means that we will meet both, live and online! EBDVF 2021 is an associated event of Slovenian EU Presidency.

EBDVF 2021 theme is “Digital Transformation powered by Data and AI”. We approach the theme from the sectorial and cross-sectorial angle. The programme is structured into five tracks discussing the topics of adoption of industrial and trustworthy AI, Data Spaces, Data-Driven business models, standardization, societal impacts and many others. Join the event to get the best insight to European Big Data and AI!

The physical part of the EBDVF 2021 will be hosted in Ljubljana. The local collaborators of EBDVF 2021 are DIH Slovenia, ICT Association of Slovenia (Chamber of Commerce and Industry Slovenia), Jožef Stefan Institute (JSI) and the University of Ljubljana. The central day in the Slovenian capital will kick-start the event by inviting high-level political and industry keynotes to share their views on data and data-driven AI-related policy developments.

All the EBDVF 2021 sessions will be streamed online. The event will merge the online portions to the sessions held in Ljubljana, bringing both, live and physical venues, to the disposal of the event attendees, speakers and sponsors.

We will open the registration to the EBDVF 2021 soon. If you are interested in collaborating with or hosting a session in EBDVF 2021, please send us a message at info@core.bdva.eu. For more information and updates, visit the official website of the European Big Data Value Forum.


The European Big Data Value Forum (EBDVF) is the flagship event of the European Big Data and Data-Driven AI Research and Innovation community organised by the BDVA and the European Commission (DG CNECT). The EBDVF brings together industry professionals, business developers, researchers and policy-makers from all over Europe and other regions of the world to advance policy actions in the areas of Data and AI. EBDVF has yearly 600 to 2000 attendees.

The EBDVF 2021 is fifth edition in the history of the event. The first edition was organised in Versailles in 2017 and focused on “Trusted AI in Smart Industry”. The second edition in Vienna in 2018 covered the topic of “Data-Driven AI for the Future” and was an official event of the Austrian EU Presidency. The 2019 edition of EBDVF was hosted by Helsinki, Finland and focused on “AI and Big Data Transforming Business and Society”. The EBDVF 2020 gathered the German and European AI and Data communities together with a central theme “Towards a strong European Data and AI Ecosystem”.
