ESSnet Big Data I

Welcome to ESSnet Big Data I
Big data: from exploration to exploitation.

ESSnet Big Data is a project within the European statistical system (ESS) jointly undertaken by 22 partners. Its objective is the integration of big data in the regular production of official statistics, through pilots exploring the potential of selected big data sources and building concrete applications.

ESSnet Big Data I has started in February 2016 and ran for 28 months until May 2018; it consists of 10 workpackages: eight of these (WP1 to WP8) are content-oriented, while the other two, Coordination (WP0) and Dissemination (WP9), support the overall project.
