  • Promote the exchange of ideas and experiences among existing data services in Europe and those that are being developed in project partner countries;
  • Help strengthen the network between data services, government institutions and experts in the project partner countries.

The Conference Keynote Speaker was Denis Huschka of the German Data Forum (RatSWD), where he has worked as Managing Director since 2007. He is also the Executive Director of the International Society for Quality of Life Studies and Founder of the Gesellschaft für Wissenschaftspolitik und Infrastrukturentwicklung (GWI Science Policy and Infrastructure Development Company).
