This chapter describes big data roadmaps for Europe in the areas of technology, business, policy, and society. The roadmaps outline the most urgent and challenging issues for big data in Europe. They are the result of over 2 years of extensive research and input from a wide range of stakeholders from the European big data ecosystem. The roadmaps will foster the creation of a more stable big data environment by enabling enterprises, business, entrepreneurs, SMEs, and society to gain from the benefits of big data in Europe. The chapter introduces the Big Data Value Association (BDVA) and the Big Data Value contractual Public Private Partnership (BDV cPPP) and describes the role played by the BIG project in their establishment. The BDVA and the BDV cPPP will provide the necessary framework for industrial leadership, investment, and commitment of both the private and public side to build a data-driven economy across Europe.
