Data Spaces

Data Spaces help to take a concrete and domain-specific look at challenges in the area of data. In a Data Space, data is made available for potential innovative services while maintaining data sovereignty.

A data space is an organizational and technical space where stakeholders and data meet; and where data is made available for joint use in use cases via a decentralized data infrastructure (federated architecture). The data remains where it is generated and is exchanged as needed (acting with choice). Data Spaces usually focus on higher-level domains/business areas.

The Data Spaces for Sustainability of the Green Data Hub aim to contribute to the implementation of national and international climate protection goals. Aligned with the strategic fields of action of the Federal Ministry for Climate Protection, Environment, Energy, Mobility, Innovation and Technology (BMK), the Green Data Hub therefore focuses on the domains Energy Transition, Mobility Transition, Circular Economy and Digital Climate Twin:
