Data sovereignty for a sustainably competitive society: How can Gaia-X help Austrian companies and Austria as a digital location?

Friday, August 26, 15:00 to 18:00, Alpbach

With extensive global digitalization in all areas of society, our data sovereignty becomes a fundamental necessity to ensure economic growth and social justice in Europe in a sustainable way. This workshop will discuss the social and economic aspects of data-driven value creation and the EU key initiative Gaia-X.

  • How can Europe compete in this global environment?
  • What impact will the data-driven economy have on European businesses?
  • And how can Europe shape the future of the digital economy according to its values and goals?
  • What are the goals of Gaia-X?
  • How can Gaia-X help Austrian companies and Austria as a digital location?
