New Position Paper 

The Role of IDSin Implementing the European Data Strategy 

The IDS initia­ti­ve is rea­dy to take respon­si­bi­li­ty for imple­men­ting the Euro­pean Data Stra­te­gy. Details are publis­hed in the new posi­ti­on paper: “Imple­men­ting the Euro­pean Stra­te­gy on Data. Role of the Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces (IDS)”. 

The recent­ly publis­hed EU data stra­te­gy crea­tes a visi­on of Euro­pean data spaces gover­ned by rules that are deri­ved direct­ly from fun­da­men­tal Euro­pean values. The IDS stan­dard is an indis­pensable ele­ment for such a trust­worthy data sharing infra­st­ruc­tu­re in Euro­pe – enab­ling the crea­ti­on of all kinds of data spaces, data sharing eco­sys­tems and mar­ket­pla­ces based on data sov­er­eig­n­ty.  

Against this back­drop, IDSA wel­co­mes a strong inter­ac­tion with the EU Com­mis­si­on on its data stra­te­gyWhat does this mean in con­cre­te terms? IDS will con­tri­bu­te tech­no­lo­gy, pro­vi­de data infra­st­ruc­tu­re ser­vices to the ope­ra­ti­on of the Euro­pean Data Spaces as well as advi­so­ry to the Euro­pean Data Act and a net­work to sup­port know­ledge sharing. 

“In doing so, the imple­men­ta­ti­on of the Euro­pean Data Stra­te­gy will bene­fit from an estab­lis­hed net­work of exper­ti­se, data spaces know­ledge embo­di­ed in a matu­re refe­rence archi­tec­tu­re model, and soft­ware arte­facts rea­dy to use, which will speed up »time to mar­ket« of stra­te­gy imple­men­ta­ti­on”, the paper reads. 

To make the visi­on of Euro­pean data spaces a rea­li­ty, IDSA is asking for the sup­port of EU poli­cy makers to help leverage the initiative’s full poten­ti­al for the bene­fit of data sov­er­eig­n­ty in Euro­pe. The details are publis­hed in the posi­ti­on paper: “Imple­men­ting the Euro­pean Stra­te­gy on Data. Role of the Inter­na­tio­nal Data Spaces IDS” and in the back­ground arti­cle: “Data Spaces as Core of the Imple­men­ta­ti­on of the Euro­pean Stra­te­gy on Data and Europe’s Digi­tal Future”.
