Welcome to the Gaia-X Public Sector Data Space Event! In recent years, the public sector in Europe has undergone a significant digital transformation, resulting in a tremendous increase in the exchange of data. To fully prosper in this data-driven economy, Gaia-X provides a framework for better data availability, improving the production and distribution of content, developing and establishing new business models, and stimulating socio-economic growth and innovation.

Gaia-X supports European organisations to prosper fully in a data-driven economy. Because better data availability, supported by the Gaia-X framework, aids in improving the state responses and stimulates socio-economical growth and innovation.

The aim of this event is to inform representatives of the public sector in Europe about public sector activities and ideas for creating and establishing public sector dataspaces. Our message is clear: you’re not alone, we aim at fostering contacts, exchanging our knowledge and learning from each other. We believe that cooperation within the public sector vertical is the key to success.

We hope to see you at the Gaia-X Public Sector Data Space Event! By attending, you will have the opportunity to learn about the latest developments in public sector dataspaces, share your ideas and experiences, and connect with other professionals from the public sector. Together, we can achieve great things!
