On June 4, 2020, France and Germany inaugurated Gaia-X, an ambitious European data infrastructure project aiming at defining the principles of a trustworthy, efficient, competitive and secure cloud market.
The objective of Gaia-X is to:
- Create an open digital ecosystem where data can be gathered and shared in complete security and trust.
- Meets the legal and security needs of European companies, in line with European values.
- Documentation is currently being published, including the architecture of the concept and user cases in the sectors of health.
Good to know:
In September 2020, several national user associations organised a webinar on the benefits of Gaia-X to users. You can listen to the webinar here.
Since its launch, Gaia-X was joined by many European and non-European players who support the approach. Documentation is currently being published, including the architecture of the concept and user cases in the sectors of health.
National Gaia-X "Hubs" are being set up in European member states to coordinate stakeholder "data space" initiatives. Information on the Gaia-X approach, membership and how to participate in the data space initiatives are available here.
