EGI is awarded a Silver i-Space label by the European Big Data Value Association

We are pleased to announce that the EGI Federation received a Silver i-Space label at the European Big Data Value Forum in Vienna.

The Big Data Value Association granted this label to all i-Spaces that help drive forward Big Data adoption across all domains within European industry.

BDVA i-Spaces serve as European hubs for Big Data research and innovation activities.

Every year, existing hubs can obtain one of the three BDVA i-Space labels: Bronze, Silver and Gold. These grades are aligned with the maturity and impact of the candidates in five main domains: excellence of infrastructure, quality of services, projects and sectors, impact to ecosystem and business model.

For NGIs in the EGI Federation this prize means:

  • Being part of a certificated BDV-iSpace Label as quality billboard
  • Increased visibility in EU Big-Data community, especially SMEs and innovative actors
  • Possibility to connect and benchmark to other iSpace practices
  • Access to European funding instruments to enable innovation and federation of existing i-Spaces
  • Big-Data community recognition.
