Infrastructure for end-to-end digitization of production based on Gaia-X
Gaia-X is a project to create a high-performance, competitive, secure and trusted data infrastructure for Europe, developed by representatives from business, science and politics. The goal is to build a secure networked data infrastructure that meets the highest standards of digital sovereignty and promotes innovation. In an open and transparent digital ecosystem, data and services are to be disclosed, combined, shared and used.
Although Gaia-X has recently evolved from an abstract idea to a real architecture and first services, neither science nor industry has benefited from it yet. Research and further development of the architecture and components developed so far are difficult due to the lack of specific implementations and experiences and the high barriers to entry into the topic. Therefore, the potential and the current status of the project show a strong disparity.
The goal of the project is to make Gaia-X usable, to create a specific instance for this purpose, to enable coupling with production systems and thus to create the basis for a strongly scaling innovation platform for the Innovation Campus Future Mobility (ICM), but also beyond that in research and industry.
The planned work is divided into three subprojects:
