Big data – Energy and Networks

October 12, 2017 @ 8:00 am - October 13, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

Welcome to Big Data – Energy and Networks

The exponential growth of available data, commonly called Big Data, together with powerful analytic methods, is dramatically impacting all activity sectors. Nordic countries, ranked among the most developed countries in the world and well-knowned for involvement into social and environmental matters, have much to tell.

This workshop will present in a multidisciplinary approach the latest developments offered by Big Data to achieve more sustainable activities. A special focus will set on the integration and regulation of energy networks in the context of electric cars fleets and smart neighborhoods. Personnal data protection and data properties will also be discussed in a public conference.

NTNU, SINTEF and the Institut Français de Norvège welcome you in Trondheim for a series of conferences, B2B meetings, visits and a dedicated Young Researchers’ Workshop coordinated by YEAR (Young European Associated Researchers).

This conference is part of the French-Nordic cycle “Big Data and Sustainability” organised by the Instituts Français/Ambassades de France of Norway, Sweden, Denmark and FInland.



On Thursday, Nordic and French speakers, from both academic and industrial sectors will present state of the art and some of their current projects. 


During the matchmaking session, you will meet potential partners from R&D institutions, companies and stackholders.
