Indeed, the continued generosity from sponsors and members alike is critical for continued infrastructure-based research and development in this area. Having Engineering, Eco and DE-CIX supporting on media elements has indeed been instrumental.

“We are looking forward to this summit and releasing the next phase of Gaia-X,” remarked Francesco Bonfiglio, CEO of Gaia-X. “A lot has happened since last year’s summit that took place exactly on the same dates. We have evolved the Gaia-X concept in the technical architecture. We have defined dozens of Data Space use cases. We have started lighthouse projects. We have specified the roadmap for our deliverables that will see the light by the end of this year. This summit will be a unique opportunity to see Gaia-X coming alive in the way it was promised. We walk the talk!”, he highlighted.
