Gaia-X

What is the vision of Gaia-X?

Our vision is for business, science and individuals create, share and use data more and more. In the future they will have full control over where their data is stored, who has access to it and when they want to share it.

An international team stemming from several hundred organisations is working together to create the next generation of data infrastructure: an open, transparent and secure digital ecosystem, where data and services are made available, collated and shared in an environment of trust.

What is the role of the Gaia-X, European Association for Data and Cloud, AISBL?

The Gaia-X AISBL is an international non-profit association (French: association internationale sans but lucrative, in short: AISBL) under Belgian law. The Association has been founded with the goal to develop the technical framework for the sovereign data infrastructure and operate the Gaia-X Federation services. It works hand in hand with the Gaia-X Hubs, which give users a voice at the national level, and the open-source software Community in which everyone is welcome to participate.

How does Gaia-X work?

Gaia-X envisages a networked data infrastructure connecting existing decentralised data infrastructures into a homogenous data ecosystem. The core of Gaia-X – the so-called Federation Services – are to be created open source. So, what emerges is not a cloud, but a networked system that links many cloud services providers to ensure openness, transparency, and trust.

Gaia-X results from a multitude of individual platforms that all follow a common standard – the Gaia-X standard.

Which impact will Gaia-X have?

Gaia-X enables companies, research institutions and public bodies to create innovation based on shared data. They all can connect, jointly develop, expand and scale their services to bring innovative and customised offerings to market. Dependencies on individual providers, so-called lock-in effects, can therefore be reduced.

Gaia-X at the Hannover Messe

Digitalisation and cloudification are key for driving innovation in the manufacturing industry. With Gaia-X we want to help create new business models and to support innovation with the next generation of data infrastructure.

The Hannover Messe is one of the world’s largest trade fairs – and Gaia-X is there. At this year's event, which is completely digital, we will not only present the technical and conceptual progress at our digital booth, but also invite you to lectures and expert panels.
