- 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, Datapace.io and other success stories in data sharing spaces or marketplaces;
- Engagin this broader community by producing white papers with an overview of the state-of-the-art (initiatives, projects and solutions), and a vision for how a safe, fair and ethical data sharing space can be achieved at EU-level.
