About the Green Deal Dataspace (GDDS)

A federated ecosystem for resilience and sustainability

Crises are the permanent mode of our time. However, despite all the pitfalls and imponderables, crises can also be seen as opportunities. Namely, primarily to build robust resilience and sustainability. The newly created Green Deal Dataspace, is designed to do just that. It provides access to projects and services that can be subsumed under this theme. And it goes far beyond previous dataspace offerings.

Designed as an open ecosystem, the Green Deal Dataspace is the first cross-domain data space for projects and services that allows users to offer their own solutions or search for and find resources for their own projects. You will find an expert network in the Resilience & Sustainability Ecosystem Hub:

The future lies in secure data sharing

In a networked world, data is not only of great importance because it enables processes and is an indispensable driver of the economy.  They have their own and increasing value that goes far beyond controlling processes. The future lies in the secure sharing of data, which ranges from monetization to the promotion of innovations and the development of new business models. This requires appropriate infrastructures and protected “harbors” or more precisely dataspaces where data sharing with two or more parties can take place. 

Trusted use in data ecosystems

A data space is defined as a decentralized infrastructure for the trusted sharing and exchange of data in data ecosystems based on commonly agreed principles. The concept of data spaces is already explicitly used as an approach in the European Union’s data strategy.  

In addition to the aforementioned reuse of existing data, participation and data sharing serve the purpose of ensuring the long-term sustainability of companies/organisations.  

In order to achieve this goal, the Resilience & Sustainability Dataspace was created, which specifically offers projects and services dedicated to this topic.
