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.
