Data Space Business Alliance

About Big Data Value Association

The Data Spaces Business Alliance (DSBA) accelerates business transformation in the data economy. It’s the first initiative of its kind, uniting industry players to realise a data-driven future in which organisations and individuals can unlock the full value of their data.   

Data spaces are key to achieving sovereign, interoperable and trustworthy data-sharing across businesses and societies – a key step to the data economy of the future. The Alliance embraces this reality, converging the best skills, assets and experience in Europe into a one-stop-shop for data spaces, from inception to deployment.   

The Data Spaces Business Alliance (DSBA) are Gaia-X European Association for Data and Cloud AISBL, the Big Data Value Association (BDVA), FIWARE Foundation and the International Data Spaces Association (IDSA). Together they represent 1,000+ leading key industry players, associations, research organisations, innovators and policymakers worldwide. With this cross-industry expertise, resources and know-how, the Alliance drives awareness, evangelises technology, shapes standards and enables integration across industries.

As quality data sharing is quintessential for the digital revolution, data spaces are the key to enabling data sovereignty. To support the field, the DSBA and the Data Spaces Support Centre (DSSC) have joined hands to organise the Data Spaces Symposium, the world’s leading event on data spaces, where participants can learn, connect and drive the future of the digital economy. This symposium is a pivotal gathering for those at the forefront of data space innovation and strategy. It serves as a platform to showcase the latest market-ready use cases, advanced technology solutions for existing and emerging data spaces and the essential work done by the DSSC in crafting a foundational blueprint for common European data spaces, aligning with the European Data Strategy. Data Spaces Symposium 2024 is set to take place in Darmstadtium, Frankfurt Region, from 12-14 March 2024.
