In our tech-driven world, data is everywhere, with the potential to support our decisions and make life better. But sharing data between industries to improve services is tricky - privacy, rights, and security often get in the way. Enter DS2, a fresh project funded by the European Commission, kicking off this week to build Europe's first modular system for connecting different industry data spaces. The goal? Make data sharing across sectors easy, secure, and compliant with EU rules.

HELSINKI, FINLAND, January 18, 2024 - DS2, a new project funded by the European Commission, is on a mission to break down industry silos and unlock collaborative innovation by revolutionising cross-sector data sharing. Led by VTT, the technical research centre of Finland, the project brings together researchers, developers and policy makers to create a standardised solution for sharing complex data between industries seamlessly and responsibly.

Launched this week in Helsinki, DS2 envisions the creation of Europe's first modular infrastructure for connecting diverse industry dataspaces. Focusing on urban planning, precision agriculture, and air pollution sectors, the project aims to develop and test an Inter-sectoral Toolkit with common standards and tools for dataspace federation. The innovative approach will empower industries to overcome challenges related to sovereignty, security, and privacy, fostering a robust, secure, and connected data infrastructure across Europe.

The new network of linked dataspaces will facilitate faster and more complex collaboration across sectors, enabling actors to work together effortlessly to share, access, and utilize data for new applications, personalized services, and seamless experiences tailored to people's needs.

Specifically, DS2 will:

• Define Data Sharing Challenges: DS2 will figure out data sharing barriers between sectors and create a plan to solve them.
• Protect Data Owners: Tools and processes will be built to safeguard data owners' rights and comply with European data rules.
• Include Everyone: DS2 will use chatbot technology to keep humans involved in decision-making about data sharing when automation isn't the best solution.
• Connect Everything: DS2 will create a toolkit to link up different data spaces, forming an interconnected ecosystem.

Juha-Pekka Soininen, DS2's coordinator from VTT, hosted the kick-off meeting, saying,
"In the ever-expanding realm of data, DS2 represents Europe's commitment to forging a future where collaboration, innovation, and respect for data sovereignty converge. Together, we embark on a transformative journey, building a foundation for responsible and interconnected cross-sector data sharing that empowers individuals, organizations, and society as a whole."

The inaugural project meeting brought together partners from 17 organizations across 9 European countries, preparing the team for three years of hard work and collaboration on turning ideas into reality. Emphasizing the strength of collaboration across domains, cultures, and geographies, DS2 aims to create a flexible, innovative solution that ensures interoperability and coordination of data architectures, enabling cross-domain data sharing and potentially the creation of new data markets.

DS2 invites researchers, data specialists, policymakers, and the public to be part of the solutioning. By working together, across different areas and cultures, DS2 will create a fair approach for sharing data seamlessly and responsibly. Join at
