⭐ Good Practice Description

the German Federal Government and the Fraunhofer Institute partnered with key industry players to launch International Data Spaces (IDS), a project that aims to improve European data sovereignty. IDS created a secure data space to help organisations from different industries monetise their data resources through cloud-based secure exchange and the easy combination of data in value chains.

Success Factors

Data Governance

IDS provides a reference architecture, a formal standard, and reference implementations, including sample code. The two foundational elements of IDS are IDS connectors that acts as a gateway and certification concept which confirms the conformity of components (connectors) and organisations with IDS architecture from independent organisations.
