Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces Asso­cia­ti­on (IDSA) and Data Tra­ding Alli­an­ce (DTA) have deci­ded to take part in an exchan­ge in terms of con­tent and defi­ning joint steps for fur­t­her coope­ra­ti­on. Rep­re­sen­ta­ti­ves of both initia­ti­ves used the “FIWARE Glo­bal Sum­mit” plat­form in Mála­ga, Spain, to dis­cuss and to deve­lop their the­ma­tic prio­ri­ties. The aim is to focus on “data qua­li­ty for cross-com­pa­ny data exchan­ge” and on “cer­ti­fi­ca­ti­on and archi­tec­tures for data sharing”. Fur­ther­mo­re, IDSA and DTA will inten­si­ve­ly con­sult on ques­ti­ons and deve­lop­ments with respect to data exchan­ge, data cata­lo­gues and data mar­ket­pla­ces.
