The H2020 ICT-16 'Big data – research' Information and Networking day took place on 16 January in Brussels.


The aim of the event was to inform and guide prospective applicants preparing project proposals, to facilitate sharing of ideas and experiences. It gave all participants the chance to network and to find partners for their projects.

ICT-16 is part of Horizon 2020's ICT work programme 2014-2015

The activities supported under this topic contribute to the Big Data challenge by addressing the fundamental research problems related to the scalability and responsiveness of analytics capabilities (such as privacy-aware machine learning, language understanding, data mining and visualization). Special focus is on industry-validated, user-defined challenges like predictions, and rigorous processes for monitoring and measurement.
