International workshop jointly organised by ERSA, DG REGIO and CORE. 
How can Regional Policy Benefit from Big Data?
22 November 2016, CORE-UCL Louvain-la-Neuve, Belgium

The aim of this workshop is how various types of Big Data can be used in a creative way to tackle key issues in today’s regional policy like smart specialisation, social inclusion of vulnerable population, the impact of migrants and refugees, ….  Especially knowing that we lack of timely available and detail  data on spatial scale for these issues.

The workshop will gather a unique platform of scholars: Paul Longley, Isabelle Thomas, Lewis Dijkstra, Catherine Linard, Filipe Batista e Silva, Hugo Poelman, Nicolas Ibañez and Panayotis Christidis. 

Target audience: Researchers and PhD students with an interest in Big data, Cities and Region Representatives, EU officials
