Project is implemented under funding of European Regional Development Fund.
Project duration 2018 11 – 2021 10.
The idea of the project is based on platforms that enable insights into the future of big data. One of the key aspects of technological change is the economic benefits and productivity generated by the platform. Platforms have different scales. Some of them operate on a small scale and others on a large scale. New technologies offer new opportunities to expand the scale of platforms. Choudary (2015) presents five essential elements of platforms: (1) data, (2) infrastructure, (3) community, (4) market players, and (5) network market. The chosen platform structure, new technologies provide many new choices and opportunities. The research ideas are based on three themes: (1) Open Innovation and Social Behavior Research (Crowdsourcing), (2) E-Commerce, and (3) Matching Platforms. The first topic is widely applied today to SMEs and large corporations. There is a need to analyze these topics and integrate them with digital platforms and the processing of big data resources.
Project aim to create new type digital Big Data platforms that allow us create, organize and use digital content for economic and social wellbeing of society using new methods joining Big Data and Future Foresight methodologies.
Project SMART specialisation area: Inclusive and creative society, Technologies and processes for the development and implementation of break-through innovations.
