Data spaces, as defined by the Data Space Support Centre (DSSC), are infrastructures that enable data transactions between different data ecosystem parties based on a governance framework. Collaborative projects funded by the European Commission such as DS4SSCC, PrepDSpace4Mobility, GREAT, and DATES, just to mention a few are actively working on developing a multi-stakeholder data governance scheme with the aim of sharing large pools of data and facilitating the development of data-driven services in various key sectors such as mobility, tourism and smart cities and communities.
In the context of the DSSC Insight Series , DS4SSCC, DATES and PrepDSpace4Mobility are co-organizing “The Governance of Data Spaces” webinar aims to bring together stakeholders from the DSSC project specialized in data governance aspects as well as stakeholders in various domains to explore the governance approaches and share experiences in managing data spaces. By showcasing use-cases on sustainable mobility, energy flow management, pollution, and tourism, the webinar aims to contribute to the development of effective governance guidelines for data spaces in general and these domains in particular. The speakers will provide valuable insights and foster discussions that will pave the way for the advancement of data-driven services and the sustainable development of data spaces as well as sectoral data spaces in mobility, tourism and smart cities and communities.
