Open PHACTS and Big Data Europe: Second community workshop

Last week we held the second Big Data Europe community workshop for societal challenge 1 (Health, Demographic Change and Wellbeing) in Brussels, Belgium.

After demonstrating the progress that has been made translating the Open PHACTS Discovery Platform to Big Data Europe’s architecture, we engaged in a lively roundtable discussion about how the Platform might be extended to tackle new challenges in new domains.

You can read more about the workshop outcomes on the Big Data Europe website – and keep an eye out for details of our follow-up Hangout discussion, which will be held in January 2017.

The Open PHACTS Foundation is a funded partner of Big Data Europe, undertaking foundational work for an open European big data platform.
