Data Spaces

Data Spaces

Focus and activities

This Task Force focuses on securing data sharing.

The Task Force concentrates on securing data sharing in order to realise the practical potential of sectorial European data spaces 

The efforts of this Task Force are directed towards a cross-cutting work that will enable the creation of Data Spaces, which are a pillar of the Digital Europe Strategy. This Task Force therefore focuses on: 

  • Engaging with all other relevant Task Forces and working groups;
  • Engaging the broad BDVA data sharing stakeholder community (producers, intermediaries and consumers along data value chains) to identify opportunities, challenges and possible solutions for facilitating cross-sectoral data sharing and exchange practices; 
  • Supporting the EC with mobilising initiatives seeking to realise an adequate European data sharing space for all kinds of stakeholders; 
  • Liasing with key initiatives such as Gaia-X, IDSA, InnoPay, MyData, and other success stories in data sharing spaces or marketplaces; 
  • Engaging this broader community by producing white papers with a state-of-the-art overview (initiatives, projects and solutions) and a vision for how a safe, fair and ethical data-sharing space can be achieved at EU-level.
