Which is the Gaia-X community?

The open-source Gaia-X Community comprises the entire, global Gaia-X network. Users and providers collaborate on work packages. Everyone is welcome to join the Community and contribute to the establishment of a federated data infrastructure.

What do we do?

Community stakeholders contribute to so-called Open Work Packages and share their knowledge and expertise via our collaboration platform and in webinars. These Work Packages are community-driven projects initiated by contributors outside the Gaia-X Association. With an elected chair and co-chair, Work Packages can choose their own organisational structure and function similarly to the permanent Working Groups.

The Technical Committee plays a supervisory role in the assignment and steering of the Work Packages, ensuring that their outputs – whether in the form of position papers, technical evaluations, whitepapers or proposals – are integrated into the technical development of Gaia-X.

The full list of Work Packages, their relation to the Working Groups and the overall Gaia-X organisation is publicly available in the Gaia-X Technical Handbook. This document also describes how to create new Work Packages.
