Politics, science and industry are currently meeting together at the GAIA-X Summit. The aim of the online summit: “We’re now laying the groundwork for all the services and functions that GAIA-X will offer going forward,” says Andreas Weiss from the eco Association. In his keynote, he’s delving into what the industry can expect from the initiative.
From cloud providers to telecommunications providers and infrastructure operators – more than 300 companies have already become involved in GAIA-X AISBL, which is currently being set up to provide a platform for Europe’s agile data economy. What does it take for the success of this growing – and now international – initiative? “Know-how, technology and dialogue,” says Andreas Weiss, Head of Digital Business Models at the eco Association. This is a dialogue that the GAIA-X Summit is pushing ahead with online on 18 and 19 November. And what’s more, it’s a dialogue which will be chaired by the German Federal Minister of Economics Peter Altmaier, his French counterpart Bruno Le Maire, and EU Commissioner Thierry Breton. Because ultimately, GAIA-X is regarded by politicians as the key to a digital Europe and a guarantee for growth and prosperity.
