Learn how to integrate near real-time data through CEF Context Broker trainings

The European Commission understands that making sense of data and connecting the dots is not easy. More so since each European city operates in a unique context, gathering data from different sources, in different ways.

The Connecting Europe Facility offers the Context Broker building block, which centralises, contextualises and gives meaning to collected data. This enables people like you, from the public administration or private sector, to access data that is already filtered, organised and labeled so that you could leverage on it and create smart applications. Furthermore, the Context Broker is built on common European standards making it interoperable and sustainable.

If you want to extend your know-how on how you can manage your context information, join our set of trainings and learn how to integrate the Context Broker services and knowledge into your IT department.
