Established as a not-for-profit Association in 2021, Gaia-X brings together a broad range of organisations (large companies and SMEs, developers and users of technology, industrial players, and members of academia) around one common goal: to boost the European data economy by enabling the creation of common data spaces, in full alignment with the objectives of the EU’s data strategy. To this end, Gaia-X focuses on building a common standard for an open, transparent, and secure digital ecosystem that will serve as the basis for a new model of data infrastructure guaranteeing safe and trustworthy data exchange. Open to anyone but aligned with the European values of human-centricity, transparency, openness and sovereignty, Gaia-X’s ambition is to deliver unprecedented opportunities for innovative data-driven business models in the European Single Market, reducing the dependency from non-controllable technologies while reflecting Europe’s need for data and cloud sovereignty..
