GEC – Thinking Edge and Cloud ahead: Innovation Lab with German Edge Cloud

The GEC Innovation Lab

Infrastructure and data are recombined in increasingly distributed systems and data spaces. This poses new challenges: How do I exchange data with other participants securely, confidently and in compliance with policies? How can systems be implemented in real-time and with a low environmental footprint? How can such distributed and heterogeneous systems be controlled and managed as autonomously as possible? These and other questions are addressed by the German Edge Cloud (GEC) and Fraunhofer ISST in their strategic cooperation.

DSSC – Data Spaces Support Centre

The Data Spaces Support Centre establishes and operates a support platform for data spaces in order to implement the goals of the "European Strategy of Data". The Data Spaces Support Centre will create interoperability between data spaces and thus enable the reuse of data across sectors. In doing so, the values of the EU will be fully respected, thus making a major contribution to the digital ad-vancement of the European economy and society.
