How to build a trustworthy digital ecosystem through Gaia-X Federation Services

Data-driven innovation through digital sovereignty is the goal of Gaia-X. But how can this be achieved? By establishing an ecosystem in which data is made available, collated and shared in a trustworthy environment where users always retain sovereignty over their data.

This means the ability not only to use available data from different sources but also the ability to decide what happens to the data.

Gaia-X is focusing on three outcomes:

  • Specify: Architecture specifications – to describe architecture and functionalities of Gaia-X and provide conformity requirements and criteria.
  • Develop: Open-source software code – to ensure an open implementation of federation services and further enable an open-source community.
  • Qualify: Instruments of qualification including methods and tools for conformance testing and certification of services.

The focus of our virtual event will be on the second core element of Gaia-X, the development of the open implementation of the Federation Services.

The Gaia-X Federation Services (GXFS) represent the minimum technical requirements necessary to set up and operate a cloud-based self-sovereign data infrastructure ecosystem. The project is currently planning to release first open source code in the summer of 2022.

Sitra, as the coordinator of the Finnish Gaia-X Hub has the pleasure to invite you to the online event, where you will have an opportunity to meet Andreas Weiss, Head of Digital Business Models and Gaia-X project lead at eco, Association of the Internet Industry.

In the event, you will hear what the federation concept is and how federation services can be used to build a trustworthy digital ecosystem based on European values and standards.
