TIMON project partner GEOX participated and represented the project at the European Data Forum (EDF) on 29th and 30th June in Eindhoven, the Netherlands.
The European Data Forum (EDF) is organised annually and is seen as one of the key events for relevant industry professionals, researchers, policy makers and members of community interested in data and data science. The event provides a platform to discuss the challenges and opportunities of data-driven innovation in Europe. This year EDF was held under the theme “Scaling up the European data economy” and was attended by more than 600 participants. The event highlighted the notion that, although a lot of data is collected for analysis, the actual analysis and usage of the data remains a challenge.
TIMON occupied a busy stand at the EDF exhibition area, which was organised alongside a wide range of interesting high-level presentations from European Commission representatives, Philips, Siemens, TomTom, Tilburg University, Dortmund University and many others. The TIMON stand was used to promote the project objectives and the Mapping and Navigation SDK. TIMON has also been listed as one of the exhibitors at EDF on the EDF website, thus providing the TIMON project further exposure.
