Data Spaces Dialogue: ‘Design Principles for European Data Spaces’ #2

Loading Events

IDSA and OPEN DEI aim to define common design principles for the implementation of European Data Spaces. To this end, IDSA together with the OPEN DEI consortium have launched several activities – such as this webinar – aimed at digital transformation projects and the OPEN DEI community to collaborate in defining the data spaces’ design principles.

The European Commission (EC) has laid down a strategic pathway to leverage data in the best possible way for the sake of the European citizens and the Digital Single Market. The Data Strategy and the White Paper on Artificial Intelligence are the first pillars of the new digital strategy of the EC. This EC’s Data Strategy creates the vision of a European data space which adheres to rules that are directly derived from fundamental European values. It envisages the “flow of data within the EU and across sectors” and is based on the FAIR principles when it comes to the access, management, and use of data. As the Data Strategy is more a strategic outlook and an announcement defining the framework for future activities of the EC than a technological state of the art description it remains rather vague in its nature. Nevertheless it 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. Among them companies like thyssenkrupp, Volkswagen, ATOS, Deutsche Telekom and Engineering, as well as research organisations like Fraunhofer, TNO and VTT. IDSA aims at open, federated data ecosystems and marketplaces ensuring data sovereignty for the creator of the data. The sequel of IDSA Live Sessions called Data Spaces Dialogue started on June 30, It makes 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 EC. In the first Dialogue Dr. Reinhold Achatz, thyssenkrupp, and Lars Nagel, IDSA, talked about data sovereignty and the different achievements of IDS within the last years. A special emphasis was laid on the concept of data sovereignty and its importance for business data ecosystems.
