The goal of GAIA-X is to design a federated data infrastructure with a focus on data sovereignty and data availability, based on European standards and values, with the aim to foster innovation in Europe. In a short period of time, more than 300 companies and organisations with over 500 people have already actively participated in the design of GAIA-X. Of these, 75 percent belong to the private sector, half of which are small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

The federation concept creates room for self-determination, which we in Europe greatly appreciate, and provides the basis for innovations. GAIA-X will define common mechanisms to enable interoperability and portability of data and services across multiple cloud sources, thus enabling a new era of the European digital economy. The joint endeavor of hundreds of representatives from business industries, research institutions and government aims to create new rules for cloud and data services to let organizations and individuals retain full control over their data and empower them to make independent decisions about how and who can access it.
