Description

Big Data is the rising star of the technology industry and it provides a rich source of innovation and development for both SMEs & corporates and local/national government. Our Industry and Policy event intends to bring these sectors together and provide a forum to discuss how further use of big data in the region can accelerate this development. We will present how tailored projects such as the ERDF-Big Data Corridor (BDC) project can support this work, and discuss where further collaborative work could be undertaken.
