Call for Participation
Data sharing and data spaces are increasingly becoming part of the general discussion in Europe. Sovereignty is a central concept to build (and defend) a European approach underpinning the growing data economy. Expectations are high and even higher considering existing and dominant approaches working in opposed directions, far from European values. This is the perfect time to learn more about data sharing promoting unlimited interoperability, trustworthy ecosystem or full control over data. The new EU strategy for data or the recently launched Gaia-X initiative are two strong signals in that direction, opening the path for opportunities in every sector like in manufacturing industries where the use of data will drive the exploitation of new growth potential.
Get a general overview
Making a reality of data sharing respectful of European values implies to deal with a variety of topics from architecture to standardization, from interoperability to governance. All the subjects offer different approaches that will be discussed during 12 sessions along the Winter School. State–of–the–art technologies will be presented by renowned experts in their field of activity offering any participant a broad overview about major research topics related to data sharing and first steps towards concrete solutions and implementations.
On the road to become an expert in data sharing
