The funding competition "Innovative and practical applications and data spaces in the Gaia-X digital ecosystem" from the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection focuses on the implementation and use cases for Gaia-X in various domains.
Within the framework of Gaia-X, representatives from business, science and the public sector are developing a proposal for shaping the next generation of a federated European data infrastructure with the support of policymakers and the involvement of other European partners.
Applications were submitted in a two-stage process. In the first stage of the funding competition, 130 consortia from industry, science and the public sector submitted project proposals in all existing domains of the Gaia-X Hub Germany as well as across domains. A total of 16 winning consortia with supra-regional European appeal for the development of an ecosystem based on Gaia-X emerged from the competition in the first stage of the process.
Eleven of these consortia were approved as early as 2021 and started their work in early 2022:
