Data spaces have been embraced by the European Commission, which refers to a “single common European data space”, with a conceptual definition as “a seamless digital territory on a scale that enables the development of new data-based products and services”.
Across Europe, there are numerous initiatives and projects underway to develop Data Spaces as digital ecosystems for data sharing and collaboration across industries and sectors. These initiatives seek to accelerate the digital transformation of businesses and organisations by enabling secure and efficient data exchange while also addressing data sovereignty and privacy concerns. EGI is actively engaged in supporting many of these initiatives, working closely with various stakeholders to provide the necessary technology, tools, and expertise to enable the development and deployment of Data Spaces.
Through our project partnerships and contributions to different initiatives in Europe, we are committed to contributing to the growth and success of Data Spaces and to advancing the digital economy and society as a whole.
