Reaping the benefits of the Big Data solutions

Data can be considered the 21st century’s most important raw material, an essential resource for achieving economic growth, job creation and other societal benefits. Whether incentivized by policy and legislation, or by own challenges and needs, public authorities throughout Europe are exploring possibilities to improve public services and decision-making (e.g. related to epidemics response, urban planning, road safety, environmental protection etc.) by analyzing and learning from big data available to them. Before launching a big data innovation procurement, public authorities face challenges of clearly understanding their needs, the availability and relevance of data, the capabilities of market parties and the boundaries of the policy and legal framework. For suppliers, challenges are understanding policy objectives and capturing the real needs of public authorities to offer the most valuable big data solutions.

What to expect

The workshop navigates you through the knowledge, methodology and best practice that you can replicate in your practice.

  • Why should a public authority engage in big data innovation procurement?
  • What is the economic value of big data solutions for public and the private actors, and how can we measure it?
  • What are the relevant policy framework and legal rules governing data?
  • What are the advantages for private parties to propose big data innovations through public procurement?
  • Which proven methodologies support the effective deployment of big data innovation procurement.

How will you benefit from this workshop

Participants from the public and private sectors alike will gain a clear understanding of the social and economic value of big data from each other’s perspectives:

  • Private sector participants will particularly benefit from better understanding their public clients’ needs, enabling them to convey the value of their solutions more clearly.
  • Public sector participants, on the other side, will learn how to navigate the policy and legal framework and how to apply the methodology for the procurement of big data innovation.

By structuring the course around 2 real-life cases of big data innovation procurement and several other practical examples, you will be able to gain knowledge and insight that is readily applicable to your daily activities. Moreover, the course includes an interactive session where you will be able to test your ideas for potential applications of big data innovations with experts and colleagues.
