The 9th edition of the Aporta Meeting will take place in Madrid, Spain on 18 December

Save the date and join the 9th edition of the Aporta Meeting on 18 December 2019! The event will be in Madrid, Spain and will focus on high-value datasets (HVDs). HVDs are datasets that provide greater contributions to the economy and society, notable through their re-use. The European Commission previously identified six thematic dataset categories that have been identified as high-value – geospatial, Earth observation and environment, meteorological, statistical, companies and company ownership and mobility. Datasets from these categories are expected to be key to boosting innovative services and generating socio-economic and environmental benefits across Europe.

The 9th edition of the Aporta Meeting will be structured in 3 tables:

  • Table 1: Towards the availability of HVDs.
  • Table 2: Accelerating the use of HVDs.
  • Table 3: New technological paradigms and the importance of data for their development.

Each table will focus on different actors linked to the data ecosystem: HVDs publishers, accelerators that boost HVDs re-use and companies that generate high-value services and products based on re-use.

The full agenda will be made available shortly. Follow the event news with the hashtag #Aporta2019.
