Help Support Responsible Data Practices in Europe

 BYTE transportThe BYTE project was funded by the European Commission to assist European science and industry in capturing the positive impacts and diminishing the negative impacts of big data collection and processing. BYTE moved beyond current practices to consider how big data will develop to the year 2020 using foresight tools to identify future practices, applications and positive and negative impacts. BYTE delivered a Research and Policy Roadmap to help Europe capture a greater share of the big data market by using big data responsibly. However, we still need your help.  We also published a Final Report and Guidelines that summarises the project and provides key messages.

The BYTE Big Data Community

BYTE has launched a Big Data Community to support and encourage responsible data prectices in to the next five years.  The community is a sustainable cross-disciplinary platform that will implement the BYTE roadmap and assist Europe’s large population of big data stakeholders in identifying and meeting big data challenges.
