As identified in the European Commission’s strategy for the European Data Economy, the value of this industry is expected to be €739 billion in 2020, representing 4% of the overall EU GDP, with the global big data economy seeing annual compound growth of 23% over the last 5 years.


But more scrutiny and regulation has in recent years been focused on the proper collection, storage and usage of personal and large-scale data, driven by political scandals, mass collections, and increasing awareness of the emerging predictive and AI driven world. This landscape provides strong impetus for the Data Market Services Accelerator, in order to allow startups -both new and growing- access to training and support in using data responsibly, effectively, and accurately.


In addition to this, DMS (Data Market Services) will aim to help startups address the slow adoption of advanced big-data technologies, reduce the skills gap Europe see’s with the US and China, as well as navigate the challenging terrains of privacy, compliance, and standardization.
