The European Commission has launched a number of open calls as part of the Digital Europe Programme (DEP) that are designed to support the building of data spaces in many different sectors. This is an online brokering event for organisations that can benefit from those open calls under Data for EU work strand under Digital Europe Programme (DEP). The event gives participants the opportunity to discover, connect and engage with other organisations having same interests.

Participants will get latest information about the calls from EC, will have the opportunity to present, discuss and develop new project ideas, and they can also join pre-arranged meetings with other participants in order to identify possible collaborators and to facilitate the setup of consortia. The goal of the event is to favour exchange between the leading experts to form domain specific consortia for the calls.

The event takes place fully online, and registration is free of charge. Registration for pitches is also open to everyone.

The event is organised by the DSBA (BDVA, FIWARE, Gaia-X and IDSA) as part of its activities. The event will count with the participation of the European Commission.

Data Spaces Dialogue | Mobility Data Spaces in the GAIA-X Context

Mobility, logistics, smart cities – how do they interact? Mobility moves people and is a prerequisite for logistics to move goods. Mobility takes place in urban areas. But that’s not all. Our mobile life revolves around data, contextual information that describes, movement data, weather data, about what is happening around us, where, when and why. How can we use this data? With Mobility Data Spaces! Mobility Data Spaces make the right data available to the right people at the right time. They create intelligent solutions for complex urban mobility problems.

In the Data Spaces Dialogue, we provide a first look at real Mobility Data Spaces. We talk about technical interaction and business benefit aspects. And we put Mobility Data Spaces into the GAIA-X context. In addition, we introduce something. What? We’re not revealing that yet.
