The IDSA Summit is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to learn how to build data spaces and to join forces with experts from across domains, industries and countries. Throughout a 2-day program, the IDSA Summit showcases its biggest assets and achievements of the last months: the rule book, the IDS certification, its open-source strategy, the adoption accelerator, and the remarkable success stories of its members as well as how strongly IDSA is anchored in European and global activities towards data spaces.

Alexandra Garatzogianni, Coordinator of MediaFutures, co-founded the German IDSA Competence Center at the Leibniz University Hannover (LUH). Within the framework of this Competence Center, and the Knowledge and Technology Transfer Department, various innovation activities have flourished, including the project acquisition of our H2020 Innovation Actions, MediaFutures (Data-driven innovation hub for the media value chain), TRUSTS (Trusted Secure Data Sharing Space), and PLATOON (Digital PLAtform and analytic TOOls for eNergy). In the Keynote Session on Wednesday 23rd of June entitled “Organizing Data Spaces in the Upcoming Decade”, Alexandra Garatzogianni will present the achievements of the German IDSA Competence Center and its related projects (TRUSTS, PLATOON and MediaFutures). Alina Brockob and Gerrit Rosam, both Project Managers & Business Developers of the LUH Team, attend the IDSA Summit, representing the MediaFutures project.

The International Data Spaces Association (IDSA) is on a mission to create the future of the global, digital economy with International Data Spaces (IDS), a secure, sovereign system of data exchange in which all participants can realize the full value of their data across Europe and around the world. The IDS system enables all players to take full advantage of the value their data offers through equal access to secure and sovereign data exchange among trusted partners. IDS enables new ”smart services” and innovative business processes to work across companies and industries while ensuring that the self-determined control of data use (data sovereignty) remains in the hands of data providers.

Companies hold vast amounts of valuable data that they have been unable to safeguard, share or monetize. The IDSA standard enables data exchange through data spaces characterized by uniform rules, certified data providers and recipients and trust among partners. Data spaces provide the basis for fruitful cooperation, lowered barriers to entry and limitless innovation in the data economy of the future. This future truly arrives when more companies implement IDS as their preferred mode of data exchange and when official standards and governance bodies adopt it as the binding global standard.
