GAIA-X: A Franco-German Pitch towards a European Data Infrastructure @ Virtual Lifestream Event

Repre­sen­ta­ti­ves of the Federal Government and the French Government a well as busi­ness and sci­ence insti­tu­ti­ons of both coun­tries have been working tog­e­ther with other Euro­pean part­ners on the next genera­ti­on of a secu­re data infra­st­ruc­tu­re for Euro­pe: GAIA‑X. This Fran­co-Ger­man pro­ject idea was first pre­sen­ted to the public at the Digi­tal Sum­mit in Octo­ber 2019. Based on use cases from various eco­no­mic domains and the public sec­tor, repre­sen­ta­ti­ves from about 300 com­pa­nies and orga­niz­a­ti­ons have desi­gned a tech­ni­cal archi­tec­tu­re that gua­ran­te­ed trust­worthy data exchan­ge and can form the basis for a com­pre­hen­si­ve data eco­sys­tem


LIVE-Talk bet­ween Peter Alt­mai­er, Ger­man Federal Minis­ter of Eco­no­mic Affairs and Ener­gy and Bru­no Le Mai­re, French Minis­ter of Eco­no­my and Finan­ce.


The event will start with a vir­tu­al live talk bet­ween the Ger­man Federal Minis­ter of Eco­no­mics and Ener­gy Peter Alt­mai­er and the French Minis­ter of Eco­no­my and Finan­ce Bru­no Le Mai­re. This will be fol­lo­wed by a con­tri­bu­ti­on by the Federal Minis­ter of Edu­ca­ti­on and Rese­arch (BMBF) Anja Karliczek(tbc). Repre­sen­ta­ti­ves from par­ti­ci­pa­ting Ger­man and French com­pa­nies will then exp­lain the dif­fe­rent roles and moti­va­tions in the pro­ject.

The sub­se­quent GAIA‑X vir­tu­al expert forum will pro­vi­de inte­res­ted par­ties with an in-depth look at the tech­ni­cal and orga­niz­a­tio­nal imple­men­ta­ti­on of GAIA‑X. Use cases will be pre­sen­ted and par­ti­ci­pants will have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to pose ques­ti­ons to GAIA‑X experts.

The events will take place as a Lifestream. If you are inte­res­ted to par­ti­ci­pa­te plea­se use the fol­lowing link to regis­ter. If you want to take a look at the Agen­da plea­se click here.
