During the Big Data Conference on December 3-4, 2020 we will have several interesting invited speakers, one of them is Anna-Lena Axelsson from The Forest Data Lab .

Anna-Lena Axelsson will talk about The National Forest Data Lab, an open platform that promotes co-creation and data-driven innovation within the forest sector. The platform builds upon existing data, infrastructure and collaboration between two strong players within management, analysis and curation of forest related data; the Swedish Forest Agency and the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU). The main users and collaborators are companies and public authorities but also academia and research institutes. The presentation will focus on a number of use cases that demonstrate the value of open data and services for data-driven innovation in the forest sector. The Lab also arrange seminars, networking and training events. Currently The Forest Data Lab participate in the new version of Hack for Sweden 365, which is an innovation competition related to public open data.
