Building an industrial community around Big Data in Europe was the priority of this project, to-gether with setting up the necessary collaboration and dissemination infrastructure to link technology suppliers, integrators and leading user organizations.

BIG had selected a wide spectrum of domains that have great potential to create value from Big Data. Targeted domains were: Health Care, Public Sector, Finance & Insurance, Telco, Media & Entertainment and Manufacturing & Retail.

This project had received funding from the European Union’s Seventh Framework Programme for research, technological development and demonstration under grant agreement No 318062.
