In 2016, the L3S Research Center joined the Big Data Value Association as an associate member and participates in its activities and events.

The Big Data Value Association AISBL (BDVA) is a non-profit organisation formed as private counterpart to the EU Commission (EC) to implement the BDV PPP programme (Big Data Value PPP) jointly with the EC. Up to now, BDVA has over 150 members all over Europe with a well-balanced composition of large, small and medium-sized industries as well as research organisations and universities. The BDVA aims at boosting European Big Data Value research, development and innovation and fostering a positive perception of Big Data Value.

In addition, the L3S has joined the European Network of National Big Data Centers of Excellence, a BDVA-affiliated network led by the KNOW Center (Graz, Austria) and the Smart Data Forum (Berlin, Germany) currently comprising approximately 30 European organisations active in Big Data research and practice.

Since 2011, L3S has been a member of WSTNet, an international network of world-class research laboratories to support Web Science research and education. Prof. Wolfgang Nejdl – Executive Director of L3S - represents the L3S in the WSTNet Board of Directors.

 

WSTNet combines some of the world’s leading academic researchers in Web Science with new academic programmes that will enhance the already growing influence of Web Science. Contributions from the labs will include the organization and hosting of summer schools, workshops, and meetings, including the WebSci conference series. The eighth International Conference of Web Science took place in May 2016 in Hannover and was organized by L3S. In November 2016, the WSTNet was celebrating ten years of Web Science in the worldwide event WebScience@10 taking place in Singapore, London, Chicago and Berlin – co-organized by L3S.
