The federal government is promoting the establishment of the European data trustee “EuroDaT”. Data trustees are central building blocks for ensuring European data sovereignty. EuroDaT is based on the Gaia-X digital ecosystem framework. Numerous other European countries have now joined this originally Franco-German initiative.

With the funding of the EuroDaT consortium by the federal government, concrete application examples with lighthouse character for Gaia-X will be realized from 2022 to 2024. Parallel to the basic work, EuroDaT will offer services for the evaluation of sensitive data from companies, the public sector or research institutions from the first half of 2022. As a guarantor for the reliability and neutrality of EuroDaT, the Hessian Ministry for Economics, Energy, Transport and Housing will assume the responsibility for the company. The operational unit of EuroDaT will be based in Wiesbaden.

The EuroDaT consortium consists of Atos, d-fine, Deloitte, German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence, Goethe University Frankfurt, Hessian Ministry for Economic Affairs, Energy, Transport and Housing, Lexemo, TechQuartier, T-Systems, Saarland University and the Center for Responsible People Digitization (ZEVEDI). The EuroDaT consortium is coordinated by d-fine as consortium leader.
