29 NOV – 3 DEC, 2021

The European Big Data Value Forum (EBDVF) is the flagship event of the European Big Data and Data-Driven AI Research and Innovation community organised by the BDVA and the European Commission (DG CNECT). The EBDVF brings together industry professionals, business developers, researchers and policy-makers from all over Europe and other regions of the world to advance policy actions in the areas of Data and AI.

EBDVF 2021 theme is “Digital Transformation powered by Data and AI”. We approach the theme from the sectorial and cross-sectorial angle. The programme tracks are structured to cover strategic aspects of technological challenges and impact, discussing the topics of adoption of industrial and trustworthy AI, Data Spaces, Data-Driven business models, standardization, societal impacts and many others. Join the event to get the best insight to European Big Data and AI!

The physical part of the EBDVF 2021 will be hosted in Ljubljana. The local collaborators of EBDVF 2021 are DIH Slovenia, ICT Association of Slovenia (Chamber of Commerce and Industry Slovenia), Jožef Stefan Institute (JSI) and the University of Ljubljana. The central day in the Slovenian capital will kick-start the event by inviting high-level political and industry keynotes to share their views on data and data-driven AI-related policy developments.

All the EBDVF 2021 sessions will be streamed online. The event will merge the online portions to the sessions held in Ljubljana, bringing both, live and physical venues, to the disposal of the event attendees and speakers.

We will open the registration to the EBDVF 2021 soon! Follow our social media channels or subscribe BDVA/DAIRO newsletter to stay up to date!

Collaborate or become a sponsor!

In the previous editions, EBDVF has offered companies, research institutions, associations and other organisations opportunities to support the event by sponsoring. The EBDVF 2021 hybrid environment brings new ways to introduce the partners and their brands to the event attendees. The sponsors will have a variety of channels to gain visibility and, as the content will stay online after the event, the brands will keep on getting exposure long after the last day. EBDVF has yearly 600 to 2000 attendees.

Being the yearly main event for the data and data-driven AI research and innovation community, EBDVF provides a valuable environment for the attendees to network, exchange ideas and integrate themselves and the organisations presented to the wider European ecosystem. The EBDVF welcomes all interested stakeholders to participate and collaborate with the event.
