ONLINE: GAIA-X & Startups von TechQuartier

22. September 2021 | 17:0018:00

How can startups shape a data sovereign future for Europe?

Since first being announced in 2019, GAIA-X has rallied several stakeholders around its mission of building a sovereign cloud infrastructure reflecting European values. After two years and millions committed, the foundation has been set, working groups organized, and the sights are now on the development of applicable use cases and the rollout of the functional services.

But what’s in it for startups, and how can they take an active part in shaping the solutions being developed?

  • How is startup engagement manifested within the GAIA-X network?
  • What are some tangible examples of startup-related contributions?
  • What should startups with relevant solutions know about getting involved?
  • How has the experience been so far for those who have been working within the GAIA-X ecosystem, and what are the key learnings?

Join us for an hour of dynamic presentations, constructive exchanges and Q&A around those themes. Get to hear from both decision-makers and practitioners about what’s in store for startups wanting to shape the future of a sovereign data infrastructure for Europe.
