Program and topics

The Small Big Data Congress aims at providing an overview of practical and innovative applications based on big data. Series of three-minute pitches rapidly take the audience through the latest insights and advancements about big data in the Netherlands. By providing a platform for both usual and unusual suspects, the Small Big Data Congress aims at creating unexpected combinations between industry, government and research.

The main part of our congress are the pitch sessions, in which three-minute pitches are presented about new results with or new applications of big data. We have invited SMEs, larger businesses, governments and research institutes to share their latest innovations. Each pitch invites for follow-up after the pitch session, which the congress enables in the networking session. We aim at connecting you to potential partners and customers.

In the plenary session we will festively kick-off the development of the national big data hub infrastructure with its most important coalition partners.

To get an impression of last year’s Small Big Data Congress, please take a look at our program booklet and our YouTube channel.
