DSSC Insight Series: Achieving Convergence in Data Spaces

December 14, 2023 @ 4:00 pm5:30 pm CET

The Data Spaces Support Centre (DSSC), is an initiative funded by the European Commission as part of the Digital Europe Program, which defines common requirements and establishes best practices and guidelines to accelerate the design and implementation of Data Spaces based on the main pillars of data sharing ecosystems such as sovereignty, interoperability and trust.
This month’s webinar, as part of the DSSC Insight series, will focus on the technical convergence ongoing between stakeholders building data spaces.

After an introduction from Gianfranco Cecconi, the Executive Director of the Data Spaces Support Centre, we will hear from Sebastian Steinbuß (CTO, International Data Spaces Association), and Daniel Alonso (Senior Technical Lead, BDVA), on the Technical Convergence Document from the Data Spaces Business Alliance, made up for four organisations: Fiware , BDVA, IDSA and Gaia-X. Lastly, Jason Fox (FIWARE) will unveil the FIWARE Data Spaces Connector.


1. Welcome & Introduction
– Gianfranco Cecconi (Executive Director of the Data Spaces Support Centre)

2. The Technical Convergence Document
– Sebastian Steinbuß (CTO at International Data Spaces Association) & Daniel Alonso Román (Technical Lead at Big Data Value Association)
– Explore the groundbreaking Technical Convergence Document from the newly formed Data Spaces Business Alliance (DSBA), comprising four strategic organizations: FIWARE, BDVA, IDSA, and Gaia-X.

3. Unveiling the FIWARE Data Spaces Connector
– Jason Fox (FIWARE Foundation)
– Get an exclusive look at the FIWARE Data Spaces Connector, a pivotal component in achieving interoperability and portability of solutions across data spaces.
About DSBA and the Webinar:

Achieving convergence in data spaces is a complex task that involves various facets such as data sharing, data sovereignty, and policy frameworks. The DSBA, formed by the collaboration of European BDVA – Big Data Value Association, FIWARE Foundation, Gaia-X Association for Data and Cloud (AISBL) , and the International Data Spaces Association (IDSA) , aims to drive the adoption of data spaces across Europe and beyond.

DSBA defines technical convergence as “a common reference technology framework, based on the technical convergence of existing architectures and models, leveraging each other’s efforts on specifications and implementations.” The ultimate goal is to achieve interoperability and portability of solutions across data spaces by harmonizing technology components and other crucial elements.

Attending the DSSC offers the opportunity to gain a profound understanding of technical convergence, its pivotal role in transforming businesses, industries, and society, and insights into the challenges and opportunities it presents.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to hear from experts at DSBA, consortium partners of DSSC, while they share insights into the world of technical convergence and its potential impact on the way we handle data.
