Fraunhofer ISST
– Technology is a necessary condition for success, but not a sufficient one – instead, user adoption is – Technology is converging – thanks to DSSC and DSBA endeavors. Now, the focus is to serve the users – Learnings from up-and-running data spaces is leveraged to help users – Capturing the value of data – Speed up time to value of their data space involvement
Sven Löffler
– Catena-X is setting up an ecosystem with which the supply networks of the automotive industry can network on a sovereign and innovative way. – The goal is to implement the basis for a future “Data Driven Value Chain„, and to define one standard for many Automotive value-chains needs – Catena-X shares the vision of a continuous data exchange for all participants along the automotive value chain. It ensures the economic efficiency of all network partners – from SMEs to enterprises.
Alberto Berreteaga
– AI for utility networks used for construction works prediction – Data Space to share data and create new roles: Data Space Authority, Data Space Operator, Data Provider, and Data Consumer

Eclipse Foundation
– Eclipse Foundation is working with all Data Space key stakeholders in Europe, and established Eclipse Dataspace Working Group (EDWG) last November to foster global innovation in trusted data sharing – EDWG is focused on the coordination of data space open source projects (ie. EDC): Define, document, standardize and promote Data Space protocols that open source projects may choose to utilize in their development – EDWG members include Amadeus, Catena-X, Fraunhofer ISST, Gaia-X, IDSA, T-Systems, iShare – Eclipse Foundation is recognized by ISO/IEC JTC1 as a submitter of Publicly Available Specifications (PAS). Eclipse specifications can thus become international standards.
Silvia Castellvi
– Involved in various ongoing specification and standardization activities (international and European level) – Liaison with Fraunhofer ISST and Eclipse Foundation for contributions to ISO JTC1/SC38 – Contribution on Dataspace Protocol (DSP) as IDSA initiated specification addressing the core capabilities of Dataspaces will be transferred to ISO via Eclipse Foundation – Contribution on Identity and Trust Protocol (IATP) specification initiated by Catena X and endorsed by IDSA and Gaia X – Dataspace Protocol v0.8 released in January to separate Control Plane and Data Plane. – Standardization activities with IDSA contribution: Eclipse & ISO JTC1, SC27. SC38 WG5, TS 10866, AWI 20151, SC41, SC42. CEN Focus Group on Data, Dataspaces, Cloud & Edge (DDCE) and Trusted Data Transactions CWI. IEEE P3800
Vaibhav Sharma
– Key Principles for Global Data Standards: privacy, security, transparency, accountability, interoperability. – GAIA –X Trust Framework and Technical Guideline for design together is based on: openess, transparency, security, interoperability, federation, authenticity and trust. Data spaces are crucial for cloud adoption in businesses, with Gaia-X playing a pivotal role in promoting interoperability and portability of cloud services, akin to the internet protocol’s role in enabling the web’s emergence. – Gaia-X reference architecture helps industry to overcome many challenges: technical, business & organizational, legal compliance, national & regional.
Antonio Kung
– Main focus on Data Spaces is related to data integration for vertical/horizontal interplay – Such interplaye requires implementation of many standards from different domains and ISO/IEC subcommitees: SC7, SC27, SC32, SC38, SC41, SC42 – At ISO/IEC data and data spaces related work focus is on data usage and data sharing: meta data, expressing usage, representation, governance, policy, privacy, security, quality & trustworthiness, data space infastructure, and artificial intelligence
