The European Technology Platform for Software and Services NESSI, together with partners from the FP7 project Big, has drafted a Strategic Research and Innovation Agenda (SRIA) on Big Data Value for Europe.
This strategic research indicates that the need to promote the importance of open access to research data is of great significance and emphasises that the analysis of big data is the next horizon to drive innovation and economic growth in Europe.
It is important to note that the objective of the SRIA is to describe the main research challenges and needs for advancing Big Data Value in Europe in the next 5 to 10 years.
The SRIA will be central in providing input to the European Big Data Value Partnership that aims to establish a Public Private Partnership on Data. The current content of the SRIA is based on contributions from NESSI and Big Project partners, input from other stakeholders as well as the outcomes of several sector workshops held early this year. This enhanced promotion of Big Data projects constitutes not only a future opportunity to reinforce VPH but is also a confirmation that the European Policy makers will continue working for the development of Big Data exploitation in Europe.
