The European Data Strategy mentions nine key domains in which data spaces should be created and describes the availability of large pools of data, an infrastructure to use and exchange data and an appropriate governance mechanisms as key.

This framework and the concept of data spaces is based on the groundwork done by the IDSA and its 120+ members from industry and research since its establishment in 2016. IDSA aims at open, federated data ecosystems and marketplaces ensuring data sovereignty for the creator of the data. The sequel of IDSA LiveSessions called Data Spaces Dialogue should make clear that IDSA is the starting point on data spaces and has achieved a lot of relevant results to build future data ecosystems and the European data spaces proposed by the European Commission.

In the first sequel Dr. Reinhold Achatz, thyssenkrupp, and Lars Nagel, IDSA, talked about data sovereignty and about the different achievements of IDS within the last years. A special emphasis was laid on explaining the concept of data sovereignty and its importance for businesses and future data ecosystems.

On Sep 23 the discussion will be enriched by two remarkable perspectives from Finland.
