BIG DATA AND B2B PLATFORMS: The next big opportunity for Europe

Final conference


The Executive Agency for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises (EASME) and the European Commission are working on “Big Data and B2B platforms: the next big opportunity for Europe”, a study on how to accelerate the growth of the data-based economy and support the development of B2B platforms in Europe, focusing on two sectors: automotive and healthcare.

Over the past two years, the study team has developed two technical pilots to enhance data sharing, and an accompanying analysis of regulatory barriers, market deficiencies and policy recommendations.

The two pilots, one for each sector, were presented and discussed with experts during four rounds of workshops that took place between April 2019 and October 2020. For the healthcare sector, the pilot on a high quality, diabetes-related data repository demonstrates an architecture for the fair and equal sharing of health data from different sources and regions. For the automotive sector, the pilot provides an approach to cooperative, connected and automated mobility with the introduction of a ‘shared server solution’.

The final conference will present the results of the study and discuss the main lessons learned with policymakers and stakeholders. In this vein, it will be a platform to share the policy recommendations and action plans identified by the study team.

The event will be organised online through the ZOOM video conferencing system. Further information about the agenda and connection details will be published closer to the date of the event.

This event is free of charge and open to the public; registration is required. Registered participants will receive instructions on how to join this event closer to the time.
