About the session

The Data spaces federate data from multiple providers together with applications that understand and can process the data while keeping data holders in control. This session will introduce a series of talks focusing on the latest projects and initiatives established to support the set up of various Data spaces. They will provide a general overview of the designing, building, running, and governing data spaces. We will also present practical use cases of setting up the data spaces in EOSC, demonstrating the value of data spaces for access, combining data from various sources and flexible data processing. The closing debate will discuss the value of Data spaces and their contribution to the EOSC Exchange and Data Commons. We will also focus on complementarities and cooperation between different projects and initiatives and share best practices in this respect.

Relevance for EOSC

The Data spaces allow to federate research data from multiple providers and make them easily available with applications that understand and can process the data. This is an essential capability for increasing the availability of research data through EOSC.
