The speakers were carefully selected in order to encompass an integrated view of all sectors, showing evidence of the interaction between them.

For the event we’ve managed to gather a total number of  participants over 60,  locals over 50 and internationals over 5. We’ve had local participants mainly from local SMEs specializing in the field of Big Data and participants from Ukrainian HEIs who were visiting UBB.

For the event we’ve had the following objectives:

  • to promote and demonstrate the results of the iBIGworld project
  • to raise awareness about the benefits of Big Data technology as innovation domain for business
  • to promote Big Data innovation amongst SMEs
  • to explain the concepts of Big Data innovation
  • to present iBIGworld results: the matrix competencies-topics in the field of Big Data, the eLearning platform for training in Big Data using competence-based approach and use case study, and the Smart BigData Job Hub platform
  • to encourage public dialogue around the Big Data concept between business managers and trainers


The targeted public was made up of the following categories:

  • SMEs representatives (staff and management), especially members of the Transilvania IT cluster, managed by ARIES Transilvania

  • Other stakeholders such as clusters and associations

Dean of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering and Computer Science for Education dr Dariusz Więcek has started the event. He has greeted the event participants on behalf of UBB authorities. The head of the department of Computer Science and Automatics prof. dr hab. Mikolaj Karpiński presented the academic and research facilities of the department. Dr Marcin Bernaś has introduced the participants to the world of Big Data, presented the basic notions and challenges considered. The local coordinator of the project prof. dr hab Vasyl Martsenyuk presented the project’s general objectives, target groups, and outcomes of the stage O1 focusing on survey analysis. Then dr Marcin Bernas has presented the outcomes of the stage O2 joining the Data Science competencies with the topics of the Big Data course oriented to use case study. Prof. Georgi Dimitrov from ULSIT (Bulgaria) has reported remotely on the expierience when developing Big Data framework implemented as a eLearning platform which includes 12 sequential topics strengthened with various learning activities and use cases from real world. Then prof. dr hab. Vasyl Martsenyuk presented the approach when developing the teacher and business guidelins for Big Data training course as the main outcomes for the stage O4: Piloting. Dr Marcin Bernaś offered the platform for Smart BigData Job Hub ( It will enable to dissemination, mainstreaming, and sustaining the most relevant results of the project.

Da Vinci firm presented two IT solutions based on Big Data. Da Vinci medicine caused the real interest and discussion among the participants. The company Precisely focused the attention on microservices vs monolith architecture when developing Big Data solutions. They presented their own paradigmat when developing effective code for microservices using functional programming. Record SI has paid the attention of the participants by the presentation its worth expierience when developing Big Data solutions for local governments in Poland during the decades of years.
