Webinar on Emerging Approaches for Data-Driven Innovation in Europe

Webinar: Emerging Approaches for Data-Driven Innovation in Europe

Below is the announcement of an exciting webinar happening next week. We will present the final results of several research activities around data-driven innovation in the geospatial field in support of the European strategy for data.

As you can see from the agenda, there is a great lineup of speakers including many well-known people from the open source geospatial community.

ELISE Webinar: Emerging Approaches for Data-Driven Innovation in Europe

January 24th 14:00-16:00 CET (UTC+1)

How novel approaches can facilitate and catalyse the exchange of data in line with European values, infrastructures and legal frameworks?

The digital transformation of the European economy and society is framed by the European strategy for data that foresees the establishment of a common European data space based on domain-specific data spaces in strategic sectors such as environment, agriculture, industry, health and transportation.


Acknowledging the key role that emerging technologies and innovative approaches for data sharing and use can play to make European data spaces a reality, the webinar will present the results of a set of experiments and research conducted by a pool of experts, which are part of  the upcoming JRC report “Emerging Approaches for Data-Driven Innovation in Europe”.


Coordinated by the Digital Economy Unit of the European Commission'sJoint Research Centre (JRC), the experts investigated emerging technologies, innovative approaches for data sharing and use, and socio-technicalfactors that occur in data-driven innovation.


The team from the Digital Economy Unit of the JRC will introduce the report and set the scene from the scientific and policy perspective. In the three subsequent sessions the experts will present and discuss their work. See the agenda below.

This webinar is a part of a series of "Webinars and events" performed by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre under the ELISE ISA² Action. These webinars aim to quickly engage with new topics of relevance to the location interoperability, the digital transformation of government and socio-technical developments in this arena and to share the results and outcomes of ELISE action.

The webinar will take place on 24/01/2022 at 14h00-16:00 CET (UTC+1).
