By 2022, the global big data and business analytics market is expected to generate 274.3 billion U.S. dollars a year, according to Statista. While big data collection grows in geometric progression, only about 3 percent of it merges into the big data ecosystem. This research already highlights the challenge of finding useful data amongst the rest.

Our three days conference will help to get a better understanding of developing an analytical model for your business and customer growth. Experts will discuss all aspects of data analysis, how to work with unstructured data, how to upgrade data visualization and interpretability to the next level. Dig deeper into customer analytics or increase your technical knowledge by choosing a designated workshop day.

CPDP is a non-profit platform originally founded in 2007 by research groups from the Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the Université de Namur and Tilburg University. The platform was joined in the following years by the Institut National de Recherche en Informatique et en Automatique and the Fraunhofer Institut für System und Innovationsforschung and has now grown into a platform carried by 20 academic centers of excellence from the EU, the US and beyond. As a world-leading multidisciplinary conference CPDP offers the cutting edge in legal, regulatory, academic and technological development in privacy and data protection. Within an atmosphere of independence and mutual respect, CPDP gathers academics, lawyers, practitioners, policy-makers, industry and civil society from all over the world in Brussels, offering them an arena to exchange ideas and discuss the latest emerging issues and trends. This unique multidisciplinary formula has served to make CPDP one of the leading data protection and privacy conferences in Europe and around the world.

Data Week is the spring gathering of the European Big Data and Data Driven AI research and innovation communities. In Data Week, the participants share knowledge and results, discuss topics of common interest, find synergies, build new collaborations and identify new challenges and recommendations. Data Week also links the communities and their results to the European policies and market needs and brings European initiatives and activities closer to local communities.

Data Week 2022 will take place during a period of 2-3 weeks. An online opening event will kick-start the activities on the 24th of May. The event weeks includes local events organized by the BDVA i-Spaces and international online sessions/workshops by the community, running until June 3rd. Finally, Data Week culminates at the 2-day physical event on June 8th and 9th at Naples, Italy, where the major topics discussed throughout the event weeks will be tackled through keynotes, panels, round tables and presentations by experts.

The online activities to the Data Week are free of charge, requiring only registration. The physical conference will have an entry fee. Registrations will open in April, so stay tuned!

Data Week 2022 main theme is “Towards an innovative, trusted and fair European data economy”.

Gaia-X’s mission to foster data exchanges is articulated around the following needs:

👉1 Identity & Attributes: A shared identity schema and vocabulary for attributes-based access.

👉2 Data protocols: A common set of protocols and data formats, including Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP).

👉3 Policies negotiation: A standard set of Domain Specific Language (DSL) to compute access rights and usage policies.

👉4 Traceability: Means to store and trace the negotiation results with the capacity to log intermediate realisations

👉5 Discoverability: A means to search and find datasets based on queries and filtering.

During this tech deep dive, discover how those needs have been addressed by different services and how Gaia-X lab is supporting the prototyping of some of these needs.

Life-cycle regulation of Data and AI, Tackling dynamicity and responsibility in complex ecosystems
In this year’s edition of the LAILEC Conference, co-located with the EUH4D Data Forum and the SAS Project Event, we focus on Data and AI, together critical enablers for our society to solve complex problems and for our European data economy to thrive. Both data and AI have specific lifecycles, where dynamicity and evolving features challenge legal and ethical frameworks.

The conference aims to discuss the objectives of the European Data Strategy and AI Strategy, and will explore further the regulatory and governance dimensions of a.o. the concepts of data spaces and trustworthy AI.

In the Data Track we offer dedicated panels on the guiding principles and building blocks for the digital economy and zoom in on the importance of data control in different scenarios, the need for trusted data value chains with suitable allocation of responsibilities and the impact of the fairness principle in data access, sharing and allocation of data value.

In connection, in the AI Track, our speakers will engage on the concept of trustworthiness of AI, its relationship with fundamental rights and dynamic safety and security risks and will discuss the impact of liability issues, that although challenged by the self-learning capacities of AI and the complex ecosystems, have an important capacity to significantly increase the levels of trust in AI.

The LAILEC conference will source the views of our expert speakers on towards the future avenues for the regulation of Data and AI and their specific lifecycles, building on the European Commission’s preference, as expressed in the Data Strategy, for an “agile approach to governance” that favors “experimentation […], iteration, and differentiation” and the risk-based approach to the regulation of innovation, already visible in the GDPR and the proposed AI Act. LAILEC will also create room for exchange on the pending legislative initiatives, such as the AI Act proposal and the expected Data Act proposal.

What does the European legislation need to foster data-driven cross-border experimentation and effective data sharing?

Data Forum 2022 examines the creation of a federation of Data-Driven Innovation Hubs from the law and ethics perspective. It outlines the current and upcoming regulatory landscape and its impact on cross-border data-driven innovation and experimentation.

The half-day event brings together an inspiring set of speakers with a wide variety of expertise. The panellists include EU policymakers, researchers, and representatives from SMEs, startups and DIHs. Giving the spotlight to innovators and research projects building European data markets.

Data Forum 2022 provides insight drawing from the concrete experience of actors working in the field. The event welcomes entrepreneurs and SMEs creating data and AI services, DIHs wanting to strengthen their ecosystem, ethics and law scholars analysing the effects of the regulation, policy-makers and experts shaping the environment or anyone curious to see how the future of European innovation is shaped.

The European Commission has launched a number of open calls as part of the Digital Europe Programme (DEP) that are designed to support the building of data spaces in many different sectors. This is an online brokering event for organisations that can benefit from those open calls under Data for EU work strand under Digital Europe Programme (DEP). The event gives participants the opportunity to discover, connect and engage with other organisations having same interests.

Participants will get latest information about the calls from EC, will have the opportunity to present, discuss and develop new project ideas, and they can also join pre-arranged meetings with other participants in order to identify possible collaborators and to facilitate the setup of consortia. The goal of the event is to favour exchange between the leading experts to form domain specific consortia for the calls.

The event takes place fully online, and registration is free of charge. Registration for pitches is also open to everyone.

The event is organised by the DSBA (BDVA, FIWARE, Gaia-X and IDSA) as part of its activities. The event will count with the participation of the European Commission.
