About the BDVA/DAIRO i-spaces

BDVA/DAIRO, is an industry-driven international not–for-profit organisation with more than 200 members all over Europe and a well-balanced composition of large, small, and medium-sized industries as well as research and user organizations. BDVA was the private counterpart to the EU Commission to implement the Big Data Value PPP program. Data Innovation Spaces (i-Spaces) are cross-sectorial innovation hubs that bring together data sources, AI-related technologies, competencies and all the technical and non-technical aspects needed to allow SMEs and start-ups to get their data-driven and AI-related services, products and applications quickly tested, piloted and exploited.

To recognize relevant data-driven initiatives in Europe aligned with this concept, BDVA / DAIRO launches every year an “Open labelling BDVA i-Spaces process” to help drive forward Big Data adoption and AI-based innovation across all domains within European industry.  The label is granted in three grades: Bronze, Silver and Gold, aligned with the maturity and potential impact of the candidates in five main domains: Excellence of infrastructure, Quality of Services, Projects and sectors, Impact to Eco System and Business model.
