As part of the next meeting of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) Interest Group on Agricultural Data (IGAD) that will take place between September 21st-22nd in Paris, the BigDataEurope ( action is organising a session dedicated to big data in agriculture, forestry and food. The IGAD meeting will take place at the head office of the Institut National de la Recherche Agronomique (INRA), as a co-located event of the Research Data Alliance (RDA) 6th Plenary. The big data session of the IGAD meeting is expected to investigate the characteristics of data sources & repositories that our community has, in order to identify cases that offer a high degree of variety, velocity and volume – and therefore good candidates for the application of big data technologies. In addition, an introduction to such technologies is going to be given and a discussion on their relevance and applicability for the wider range of topics related to food security, sustainable agriculture and forestry.

As a recognised stakeholder in the food and agriculture sector, we believe that you would be interested to join this session, share experiences and ideas on how big data applies for our sector, report on your relevant projects and activities, and ultimately find out ways in which the BigDataEurope action can support you.
