Gaia-X is aimed at building a federated, secure European data infrastructure. In just one year, the initiative has reached several important milestones in its effort to establish federated services for secure and reliable exchange of data between organisations. We are pleased to invite you personally to attend the event at the Chamber of Commerce to learn more about the progress made so far and how you can get involved.

Following its launch in early 2021, the Luxembourg Gaia-X Regional Hub acts as a facilitator for Luxembourg organisations interested in joining the Gaia-X initiative. Together with the Cloud Community Europe-Luxembourg (CCEL), FEDILICT-Luxembourg and Luxinnovation, the hub invites you to attend the conference Gaia-X: EU’s Most Important Aspiration In A Generation – Challenges & First Achievements.
