What to expect

Data sharing and data spaces are incre­a­singly beco­m­ing part of the gene­ral dis­cus­sion in Euro­pe. Sov­er­eig­n­ty is a cen­tral con­cept to build (and defend) a Euro­pean approach under­pin­ning the gro­wing data eco­no­my. The new EU stra­te­gy for data1 or the recent­ly laun­ched Gaia‑X initia­ti­ve2 are two strong signals in that direc­tion, ope­ning the path for oppor­tu­nities in every sec­tor like in manu­fac­tu­ring indus­tries whe­re the use of data will dri­ve the explo­ita­ti­on of new growth poten­ti­al. This is the per­fect time to learn more about data sharing pro­mo­ting unli­mi­ted inter­ope­ra­bi­li­ty, trust­worthy eco­sys­tem or full con­trol over data.

Beco­me an expert in data sharing

Making a rea­li­ty of data sharing implies to deal with a varie­ty of topics from archi­tec­tu­re to stan­dar­di­z­a­ti­on, from inter­ope­ra­bi­li­ty to gover­nan­ce. All the sub­jects offer dif­fe­rent approa­ches that will be dis­cus­sed during 12 ses­si­ons along the Win­ter School. This is a uni­que occa­si­on to rein­for­ce your know­ledge about data sharing, get in touch with dis­tin­guis­hed experts and iden­ti­fy oppor­tu­nities to get invol­ved in the field eit­her from a rese­arch per­spec­ti­ve or from an indus­tri­al point of view. You will get the occa­si­on to dis­cuss con­cre­te pro­blems, espe­cial­ly from the manu­fac­tu­ring sec­tor, and sta­te-of-the-art solu­ti­ons to fos­ter the data eco­no­my. The Win­ter School is the per­fect step to build up your care­er in the area of data sharing.

Program & topics

12 ses­si­ons will be dis­cus­sing major topics of rese­arch in the field of data sharing. Hos­ted by pro­mi­nent experts, the­se mee­tings will pre­sent sta­te-of-the-art approa­ches using con­cre­te examp­les taken from the manu­fac­tu­ring sec­tor. One ses­si­on will be spe­ci­fi­cal­ly focu­sed on up and run­ning imple­men­ta­ti­ons of data spaces and their pre­sen­ta­ti­on.

Online Tog­e­ther

This pro­gram is ful­ly online. No need to tra­vel or arran­ge a busi­ness trip, the Win­ter School is com­ing to you. Regis­ter now and start the dis­cus­sion with world­wi­de experts.

The COVID-19 cri­sis does not allow us to pro­per­ly wel­co­me the par­ti­ci­pants in a phy­si­cal mee­ting. Pre­ser­ving and fos­te­ring inter­ac­tions with peop­le far away from each other is a com­plex issue. The Win­ter School will pay spe­cial atten­ti­on to offer digital acti­vi­ties and tools to con­nect with peers and experts of the pro­gram.


Future opportunities to meet

Han­no­ver Fair, April 12–16, 2021, Han­no­ver, Ger­ma­ny on the IDSA booth & the Busi­ness Fran­ce booth with IMT.

Viva Tech­no­lo­gy, June 17–19, 2021, Paris, Fran­ce on IMT booth.
