Data Week & Power Summit 2022

Data Week 2022

Big Data Value Association (BDVA) hosted the annual Data Week 2022 for three weeks. It was kick started on the 24th of May, and ran until June 3rd, culminating in a 2-day physical event on the 8th and 9th in Naples, Italy, where the major topics were discussed through keynotes, panels, round tables, and presentations by experts. It was a gathering of the European research and innovation communities within Big Data and Data Driven AI. Participants shared knowledge and results, discussed topics of common interest, found synergies, started new collaborations, and identified new challenges and recommendations. Data Week also linked the communities and their results to the European policies and market needs and brought European initiatives and activities closer to local communities. BD4OPEM was represented at the event by several partners, Mònica Aragüés Peñalba (from CITCEA-UPC) presented results from the BD4OPEM project, and partners participated in important discussions, and learning about the latest developments.

The session Mònica Aragüés Peñalba (from CITCEA-UPC) participated in and had a chance to present results from the BD4OPEM project entitled Paving the Path Towards Energy Data Spaces aimed at investigating how the data-driven innovation and sharing potential across the energy data value chain can be unleashed by leveraging data and intelligence coming from diverse energy actors. It was arranged to be a follow-up on the “Data4Energy: Big data fuelled energy transition” session that was organized in the Data Week 2021 (on May 27th, 2021).  The session was focused on providing demos, and sharing knowledge, perspectives and experiences on Secure Data Management and Data Interoperability; Trusted Data Sharing; Data and AI Data Marketplaces; and (Descriptive/ Predictive/ Prescriptive) Data Analytics.

Power Summit 2022

BD4OPEM attended the Conference and Exhibition – Power Summit 2022 – in Brussels on the 15th and the 16th of June. This event is arranged annually by Eurelectric, which is the federation of the European electricity industry whose mission is to lead Europe’s energy transition to clean electricity. The event offered an ample opportunity to attend presentations, seminars, and panel discussions, and conduct stakeholder engagements in a one-to-one interaction. Valuable insights were gathered and documented which can be used in the exploitation of the key exploitable results of the project. Beta testers signed up for testing of the BD4OPEM marketplace, and some of its services as soon as a first version is made available for end-user testing.
