Cees de Laat et al Launch Initiative National Big Data Infrastructure

Professor Cees de Laat of System and Network Engineering (Informatics Institue, UvA) is one of the initiators to set up a national Big Data infrastructure. In order to unlock the value of distributed datasets, an infrastructure is required for secure data sharing and high performance computing. UvA, TNO and SURFsara invite partners to join this initiative.

TNO, SURFsara and UvA see the importance of setting up a national big data infrastructure for enabling digital transformation. They announce their cooperation on taking the first steps and invite others to join. Their vision of a national big data infrastructure is a pre-competitive distributed environment where researchers, SMEs and large companies can collaborate on cross-partner and cross-domain challenges. It will allow partners to innovate by sharing data in a secure environment.
