Gaia-X is widely accepted and positively perceived by companies. This is one result of the survey “Acceptance of Gaia-X” commissioned by the eco Association and GXFS. There is already a great understanding regarding the added values of Gaia-X and the associated opportunities to strengthen data sovereignty and reduce dependence on non-European providers.
The German funded project GXFS-DE released the first video of a series of scenario video series. These videos are designed to convey the complex technical concepts behind Gaia-X in an understandable way, highlighting real-world application scenarios. Each video is dedicated to a specific use case, focusing on the benefits and features of Gaia-X.
The momentum for Gaia-X is growing steadily. More and more companies and teams across Europe are joining the initiative. The first pilot projects are underway.

The two Gaia-X projects Sovereign Cloud Stack (SCS) and Gaia-X Federation Services (GXFS), which are funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action, are combined and tested together on open infrastructure in the now beginning implementation phase.
On 24 February 2022, Dr. Franziska Brantner of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action (BMWK), formally approved the funding for the Car Repair 4.0 consortium. The platform is designed to enable independent car repair shops and SMEs to use AI-based diagnostic procedures to repair and maintain vehicles.
T-Systems International, DAASI International, BigchainDB, Fraunhofer AISEC, ecsec and XLAB are the first to start with GXFS as implementation partners. A series of explainer videos are being released for the general public, and a new blog series about Gaia-X as well as a monthly newsletter keeps interested parties up to date.
The starting signal has been given for the Car Repair 4.0 (Autowerkstatt 4.0) project. In it, a consortium of partner companies and research institutes is developing a Germany-wide platform for the trustworthy exchange of industry-specific vehicle data. With the help of the platform, car repair shops can use intelligent fault diagnosis systems
This year, it’s not just the Covid-19 pandemic, but also the threatening climate change which will continue to drive forward digital transformation in the economy and society. “Digitalisation is part of the solution to many challenges,” says eco Chair of the Board Oliver Süme.

The project partners, coordinated by the eco Association, have completed the specification of the first four Gaia-X Federation Services. These form the technical basis for the development of a European data infrastructure for the secure digitalisation and networking of different participants.
As the Hannover Trade Fair 2021 has demonstrated, Internet-based solutions are gaining relevance and momentum in German industry. This means that increasing swathes of data are being generated by European companies, organisations and administrations. In the coming years, Gaia-X will help to maintain complete control over this data on a long-term basis and enable independent decisions to be made on who has access to it.
eco – Association of the Internet Industry has taken on the specification of the GAIA-X Federation Services and has set up a Project Management Office (PMO) and defined five work packages. The German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy (BMWi) is funding the project with around 13.5 million Euro.
