In the data economy, location data emerges as a key horizontal enabler across various sectors, enabling the detection and measurement of changes, enhancing business insights, and driving the development of new products and services. The Gaia-X Location Data Space Event aims to uncover the potential and versatile applications of location data, emphasising its horizontal integration across sectors such as finance, agriculture, forestry, and the energy sector, to name a few.

The Gaia-X Location Data Space Event will serve as a forum for stakeholders to explore and discuss how the Location Data Space can provide access to High-Value Datasets (HVD) needed in various Data Spaces. This event is essential for understanding how location data can be a cornerstone for data-driven innovation and decision-making across diverse industries, based on the Gaia-X Framework, which enables interoperability across multiple ecosystems.

Join us to learn, share, and collaborate on harnessing the potential of location data and Gaia-X solutions to transform the data economy.
