Venue: SOST  |  City: Ixelles, Belgium

The European Union Satellite Centre is organising a workshop on Big Data in Secure Societies, which will be held the 3rd of October 2017 in Brussels.

Objectives

The workshop will address a wide audience comprising key stakeholders, data users and service providers from a variety of domains in Secure Societies such as Space & Security and Cybersecurity.

By dedicated interactive sessions on specific topics, the workshop aims to:

  • Go into current and future Big Data needs and challenges in Secure Societies;
  • Contribute to the building of a community sharing Big Data requirements and strategies;
  • Discuss real user scenarios and use cases related to the provision of products and services in the Space & Security domain;
  • Present the outcomes of the BigDataEurope project and in particular of the pilot for Secure Societies.

Background

The workshop is the 3rd of a scheduled series within the BigDataEurope project for the H2020 Societal Challenge “Secure Societies – Protecting freedom and security of Europe and its citizens“.

The “Secure Societies” Horizon 2020 Societal Challenge is related to the protection of freedom and security of Europe and its citizens. The primary aims of the Secure Societies Challenge are: to enhance the resilience of our society against natural and man-made disasters; to develop novel solutions for the protection of critical infrastructure; to fight crime and terrorism; to improve border security; to support the Union’s external security policies; to provide enhanced cyber-security.

An example of major activity within the Secure Societies Challenge is the provision of geospatial products and services, mainly resulting from satellite data. In fact the datasets used in the Space and Security domain comply with the definition of Big Data in terms of variety (Earth Observation data, aerial imagery and collateral data), volume (several governmental and commercial satellites are currently in orbit), velocity (24/7 availability to users requiring fast responses), veracity (decision making and operations require reliable sources) and value (provision of useful and clear information).

BigDataEurope is providing support mechanisms for all the major aspects of a data value chain, in terms of employed data and technology assets, the participating roles and the established or evolving processes. BigDataEurope is engaging with a diverse range of stakeholder groups representing the Horizon 2020 Societal Challenges and implementing a Big Data Aggregator Platform Infrastructure comprising key open-source Big Data technologies for real-time and batch processing to meet their requirements.
