Introduction to Data Spaces

 Introduction to Data Spaces

Last month, the EU-funded ILIAD Digital Twin of the Ocean project initiated a series of webinars and training sessions. These events cover topics ranging from technical to economics and policy. The aim of this activity is to support communication across different disciplines, ease the design process and improve engagement with ILIAD project partners.

The second webinar had the topic ‘Introduction to data spaces’ and was held online, this week.

The concept of data spaces was introduced along with examples of different thematic data spaces in Europe. The similarities and differences between these data spaces were discussed, as well as how they could be combined with data lakes and other sources of data and information.
