This year, the Han­no­ver Mes­se is pre­sen­ting the digi­ta­li­sa­ti­on and net­wor­king of indus­try, ener­gy and logistics accord­ing to the lead the­me “Inte­gra­ted Indus­try – Con­nect & Col­la­bo­ra­te”. A topic which seems to be per­fec­t­ly gea­red to the Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces Asso­cia­ti­on. One more rea­son for the asso­cia­ti­on to be back again in 2018 after last year's suc­cess­ful pre­mie­re at the world's lea­ding tra­de fair for indus­try.

The word­ing "Con­nect & Col­la­bo­ra­te" also reflec­ts important basic ide­as and the goals of the asso­cia­ti­on. On the one hand, becau­se Indus­tri­al Data Space aims to form the basis of future-ori­en­ted data exchan­ge and secu­re coope­ra­ti­on bet­ween com­pa­nies and busi­ness part­ners in times of Indus­try 4.0. On the other hand, becau­se the asso­cia­ti­on and its stra­te­gy is ent­i­re­ly ori­en­ted towards coope­ra­ti­on and net­wor­king bet­ween com­pa­nies, insti­tu­ti­ons and orga­ni­sa­ti­ons throughout the who­le world. IDSA’s pre­sence at the tra­de fair makes that par­ti­cu­lar­ly clear.

Once again, the Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces Asso­cia­ti­on is pre­sent as an exhi­bi­tor at the Fraun­ho­fer booth in Hall 2, Stand C22. Their joint pro­gress in the rese­arch pro­ject will be pre­sen­ted the­re. But for the first time, IDSA will also have its own booth: tog­e­ther with FIWARE, the Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces Asso­cia­ti­on will pre­sent infor­ma­ti­on rela­ted to the association’s use cases, mem­bers, cur­rent pro­jec­ts and objec­tives on 63 squa­re meters in Hall 8, Stand C31. The mem­ber com­pa­nies Adva­neo, nicos AG, Dataahead, T-Sys­tems, Salz­git­ter AG and SICK AG will also be pre­sent at the booth to show­ca­se their use cases and examp­les of prac­ti­cal app­li­ca­ti­ons. Moreo­ver, two use cases from FIWARE are exp­lai­ned in detail and can be dis­cus­sed with the experts and con­tact part­ners at the booth.
