Research Data Alliance - Industry Interaction page
firstname.lastname@example.org; skype: peterwittenburg1. Write your comment below this line by mentioning your name and date.This is the simple wiki page to continue the interaction between RDA and industry about data aspects as it was started amongst others at the IoT Week in June 2017 in Geneva. We want to use this wiki page to discuss about the shape of the industry side meetings of the RDA P11 plenary which will be organised in the week of 19. March 2018 in Berlin and cover 2 days. Please add your suggestions by simply editing this page. Add new comments on top. In case of questions please contact me: mobile +49-151-41858784; email:

IoT-data differ from other research data primarily because machines provide them in real-time. For IoT companies the use of these real-time machine data makes most sene, when they are available for a long period of time. We propose to discuss whether the provision of real-time data is a challenge for research and scientific institutions for the next decades (few already do so). In an approx. 2h-slot during the side session we would like to address whether more real-time data can (and should) be provided and guaranteed by science and research and what other requirements companies have.

Expanding upon Peter's outline of the two industry sessions, I'd suggest to scope these sessions by objective of intended audience, rather than company age/size. Rationale is that best discussions usually happen when bringing together people with different backgrounds, e.g., big vs. small, established vs. new. Also, startups/SMEs usually see little reason to talk to other startups/SMEs, as in most cases these conversations drive neither visibility nor sales.
With this in mind, my suggestion for scoping two industry sessions would be:
- Roll-out Experiences and Best Practices (focus on making existing approaches work in practical settings, intended audience are practitioners who want to learn from hands-on, real-world scenarios)
- New Approaches and Applied Research (focus on disruptive approaches for early adopters, intended audience are industrial thought leaders and researchers who want to discuss new ideas)
Looking forward to feedback / discussion.

With respect to defining focus areas for the indsutry-related side meetings at RDA's P11 in Berlin I can refer to two discussions:
- The conclusion of the IoT Week workshop resulted in two core themes:
- reducing the costs of data intensive projects by incresing interoperability at the various layers
- organising an open data market that facilitates sharing/trading of data based on trust federations and/or contracts
- Earlier discussions that argued for days/sessions that have attractive offers for two types of data professionals: a) big data specialists and b) startups and SMEs. The formats for sessions/tracks devoted to startups and SMEs working on data will probably be different compared to those already experienced with big data projects.
One short agenda point should be included: Together with a number of well-known institutions RDA Germany will organise a "competition for smart ideas on how to use existing data and stimulate new businesses". It is intended to invite the 3 winners of this competition to these side events to present their suggestions.
A Program Committee has been setup to make final decisions about the agenda of the P11 event. This discussion is relevant to work out suggestions for the industry side events.

We organised a workshop at the IoT Week in Geneva (https://sites.grenadine.co/sites/iot/en/iot-week-2017/schedule/97/Globally+Interoperable+IoT+Identification+and+Data+Processing+%28RDA+Workshop++Opening%29) and I should also refer to a session about big data and IoT (https://sites.grenadine.co/sites/iot/en/iot-week-2017/schedule/547/IoT+and+Big+Data).
