Irene López de Vallejo

Director of Data & AI Ecosystems, BluSpecs

I am a curious person that has a talent for finding unique people and ideas. Over the last 20 years, I have worked and keep on working with top researchers, entrepreneurs and policy makers internationally. Bringing them together in ambitious, practical, technology initiatives is what I do best. 3 things set me apart: - a multidisciplinary background in social science, economics and architecture, - a long-standing passion to understand complex relationships linking people, technology and physical and digital assets, - being a serial failed entrepreneur. I mentor, advise and mix with people and start ups who share my passion for making our everyday lives and everyday working lives better. By doing.

Focus Track 1 - European Data Spaces
November 5, 2020
10:00 am - 11:30 am

Speakers

Description

When it comes to shaping Europe´s digital future, European member states and regions struggle to design and implement data sharing policies and strategies.

It is the European Data Strategy, with its vision to make the EU a leader in a data-driven society, by creating a single market for data for its free flow within the EU and across sectors, which inspires the definition of local (national and regional) data sharing policies that provide the principles that guide present and future decisions that will impact, and hopefully benefit, the local ecosystems of businesses, researchers, citizens and public administrations.
It is only after policies have been decided, that strategy is formulated accordingly to achieve tangible goals and objectives.
 
Objectives:
In this workshop we will hear how a variety of european public administrations and key stakeholders working on strategic data for AI initiatives are going through the path of adopting and translating the European Data Strategy, a strategy for policy measures and investments to enable the data economy for the coming five years, into concrete local policies and tangible strategies.
 
Further description:
We will hear the effort different European regions and member states are going through, to implement the European Data Strategy. We will ask them about their effort to define policies and strategies that have direct impact on their ecosystems, tools they are leveraging within their ecosystems, and early examples of infrastructure, programmes and initiatives they are planning to put in place.

Description

This session is for all those who have built the Big Data community of the Big Data Value Association and the Big Data Value Public Privare Partnership during these years. Before entering into a new adventure, let’s share the best memories and experiences: EBDVF 2020 is the perfect moment to tell how the BDVA/PPP made a difference in our life, in research, in the big data environment, in Europe. EBDVF is opening the floor to all community members who want to share their personal experience and thoughts about the value of the work done in the BDVA and the PPP. A call for volunteer speakers will be launched very soon: stay tuned so you can have your say!
