Questions & Answers


Just the European bioeconomy is already worth more than €2 trillion annually and employs over 22 million people, often in rural or coastal areas and in SMEs. The sector’s digitization is in progress but the added value of applying Big Data solutions to the available data in order to get better insight is not yet realized. The session will present results from current research in this direction along with promising upcoming research next steps.
