OPEN-DEI-Design-Principles-for-Data-Spaces

The position paper is a result of the joint efforts of more than 40 experts from more than 25 organizations involved in 13 Horizon 2020 projects and related initiatives. Our CEO Srdjan Krčo was involved in the preparation of the paper on behalf of the H2020 DEMETER project. 

The paper underlines the importance of data spaces and sovereign data sharing in creating a future data economy. This is the first approach to define the design principles for data spaces, agreements on the building blocks for a soft infrastructure and governance for data spaces. It has been developed under the coordination and leadership of Task Force 1 lead by the International Data Spaces Association of the Horizon 2020 project “OPEN DEI – Aligning Reference Architectures, Open Platforms and Large-Scale Pilots in Digitizing European Industry”.  

OPEN DEI Task Force 1 brings together experts from four domains and various data spaces initiatives to collaborate and define the design principles for data spaces implementation in a unified way. The OPEN DEI project is part of the Horizon 2020 program, which is the financial instrument of the European Commission implementing the Innovation Union, a Europe 2020 flagship initiative aimed at securing Europe’s global competitiveness.
