The International Data Space Association seeks to build a standard for data sovereignty. With the establishment of the International Data Spaces Association, business and research take an active part in designing a trustworthy architecture for the data economy. More than 101 companies and institutions of various industries and sizes from 20 countries including several Fortune 500 companies, global acting medium-sized companies, software and system houses are members of the association. The IDSA aims to guarantee data sovereignty by an open, vendor-independent architecture for a peer-to- peer network which provides usage control of data from all domains.
We joined IDSA in 2019 and are involved in the architecture work group and take part in on- and offline events. This membership is important to us because we believe in building ecosystems with rules to enforce data ownership and that will increase the transparency and the quality of data. Data sovereignty should be at the heart of every European Enterprise.
