CBS Seminar: Big Data Matters - Towards Smart Statistics
Wednesday 27 September, 09.00-20.00
Brightlands Smart Services Campus, Smedesstraat 2, Heerlen

Big Data Matters. Big Data has the power to improve efficiency, accuracy and timeliness in information-led work practices, thus providing tools for enhanced policy support to governments and industries. This is why Statistics Netherlands (CBS) set up the Center for Big Data Statistics (CBDS) in September 2016. At the CBDS, we unite CBS’ expertise in the field of big data technology and method implementation with the expertise of more than 40 collaborative partners from government, the business community, science and education. Together, we are working towards smart statistics.

On Wednesday, 27 September 2017 – exactly one year after the CBDS was established – we will take stock of the progress made over the past year during the seminar Big Data Matters – Towards Smart Statistics which will be held at the Brightlands Smart Services Campus in Heerlen. What are the results of big data innovation over the past year, both within and outside the CBS organisation? What kind of opportunities have we gathered from big data-driven work? What about challenges and issues, and more importantly, how do we take these on?

More information on the event and registration is available on the CBS website.
