Basic training

Innovation in business ecosystems is increasingly taking place through the exchange of data between companies. In the provision of data, both the producers and owners of data do however often find themselves exposed to the risk of losing control thereby eliminating the strategic value of their data resources. In consequence, the sharing of data is limited today and the potential of data ecosystems remains unrealized.

This conflict of aims which exists across industries, is addressed by the International Data Spaces (IDS) by making it possible for data providers to share data while maintaining data sovereignty. International Data Spaces is an initiative with the objective of creating a secure data space that enables the sovereign management of their data assets for companies of all sizes in various sectors.  

The Fraunhofer Academy within the framework of the International Data Spaces initiative offers the two seminars “Basic Training – Data Sovereignty and International Data Spaces” and the “Hands-On Software Workshop – Data Sovereignty Implemented Through International Data Spaces”.

Basic Training – Data Sovereignty and International Data Spaces

This practical training for specialists and managers presents the basics of data sovereignty and the structure of the International Data Spaces architecture with its technologies, base services, and roles.
