The challenge is to provide core enabling functions for extracting value from the massive amounts of data generated, to support breakthrough innovations in industry segments like utilities, manufacturing and health.

The theme of the summer school is Big Data focusing on business, value chain, technology, safety and security of the future cloud. This will be introduced through lectures, workshops, public seminars, and hands-on supervision.
